I already have a bitcoin node running over the network. Now my question is whether copying .bitcoin to another system will make a new node on that system or not?

I have seen some post where people have faced issues in doing so. If it is possible then what is the way to do so.

Problem solved. You can just copy the whole blockchain to default location i.e. /home/user_name/.bitcoin and run bitcoind and that's it. Your system will hardly take 3 4 minutes to verify and then your system will run as a full node.
