Hello kind people,
OK, I know this is not for this list; However, reading all these
mails on the topic of filesystems, I thought that it's a good
place to ask about backup software on linux.
Here's what I have. It's an HP 230 Ultrium LTO 1 SCSI backup
mechanism (tape streamer to be exact).
I'm supposed to hook it up today with an adaptec AHA-2940 controller
to a gigabyte mainboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04.
Does anyone have a config close to this one ?
What kind of software would you chaps recommend ?
dd ? Bacula ?? Other ??
This mechanism is supposed to grab backups from the same
machine running it (the tape streamer), which is an ubuntu
server version 10.04 with three SATA disks and maybe some stuff
remotely (through the local network that is), from a couple of
windows 7 / windows xp machines.
Also 100Gb on every tape is not going to be enough and it looks like
I will have to swap tapes during the process.
Thank you all for your time and patience,
