No, you should use dump/restore and if it is the root partition you will
need to edit fstab afterwards.
PS There's a FAQ all about this. I have no wish to decry the bsdvault
article you quote, since I haven't read it -- it may even be the same as
the FAQ. But if the FAQ or handbook has a section answering your
question, then it is always likely to be the best starting point.
