Re: [K12OSN] Backup



Sorry for the late reply, but I have, untill recently, been away from my computer.  I don't know if this will help be cause of the crudness. (I'not a Linux guru)
 
1. I setup a Linux 8.0 server with an old p133 and a 20GB hdd .
2. Used smbmount to mount a hidden share on that server from my other servers.
3. Wrote a script to tarball the /etc, /home, /var/spool/mail, /var/lib/rpm, and /root directories. Then cp'ed the existing backup to another file so I at least had 2 copies of it. 
4. Set the script in a Cron job to run 3 time a week at midnight.
 
It may be ulgy, but at least I have most oof the important files. :) BTW, if any one has suggestions about any other directires, please lest me know. Thanks and I hope this helps.
 
I remain...

Thanks to K12 i have a server and 5 workstations working perfectly. Has you developed  a procedure for backups so in case of a mayor problem i can restore this instalation to where it is now?
