[TriLUG] Backing up remote systems
Wed, 27 Mar 2002 16:38:33 -0500
I have a handful of web servers that I would like to back up w/ from
a particular box. I've found references to rdump and to AMANDA.
AMANDA seems like a pretty complicated way to deal w/ a simple setup,
so I'm leaning towards rdump ( except that I hate that it seems to be
based on rsh which I definately don't want to use ).
Anyone have tips on how to backup *nix boxes to a remote *nix box?
Can I tunnel rdump through SSH?
I'm a big fan of keeping it simple. I'm even thinking of using a
cron job to create tar.gz files of what I need to back up and scp'ing
them down to the box w/ the tape drive? Does this sound silly ??
Thx for any and all advice!!!
