'Box' Recovery in Progress

Kind of a useful tool, though I don't know if I'd want to be using Mondo to backup a 160GB Linux server...that would involve a lot of CDs to burn and later restore from....on a regular basis.

But, the idea was raised at work....because of they way backups are done by centralized IT operations.....they don't like any of our dual boot machines. They just net connect to a node and ask for files modified on the previous day (along with complete backups every month or so). Of course, it doesn't distinguish that a machine might change between its boots.....so the backups are useless, etc.

So it was brought up that some of the machines have CD burners....can't we backup the machines to the CDs....ummm, okay....three machines...120GB, 108GB and 144GB of disk....I think that's a lot of CDs.

Though mondo is used on some of the machines at the site....but they backup small systems....like the NIS servers. Or just the OS disk of the NFS server.

Oh well....:**:

Back to feeding CDRs to get 'box' back up.... :yawn:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
