Networking :: Configure Ubuntu For Time Machine Backup?

Jan 10, 2010

I have a machine running Karmic sat in the corner of my office. I scp stuff from my mac to it quite a lot over my local wireless network.At the moment, it holds a .sparsebundle backup of my mac created by SuperDuper! (mac backup application) that I periodically transfer over. I'd like to make this system a little more sophisticated and use Apple's Time Machine to automatically backup to my Ubuntu box if possible.

Anyone have any experience of this? I'm kinda hoping for something a bit more straight forward than this: http:[url]....

Ubuntu Servers :: Backup Setup - OS X Time Machine Support

Oct 12, 2010

I'm wanting to setup a file server for home. I'll probably use the following: Ebox, Firefly Media Server, TorrentFlux I'm still not sure about how to go about redundancy for the store, possibly software RAID 5. ZFS would be cool but the linux support through FUSE and large memory requirements are a bit of turn-off. I'm also not sure how to go about supporting TimeMachine on my new Macbook Pro. I've seen a couple of old guides on the web discussing Netatalk and Avahi but noting new.

I'm thinking I'll probably use a spare 2.5" 80GB SATA drive for the OS drive, and then probably 4x2TB HDD (for 6TB of useable storage in RAID 5). I'm not sure about what mobo and cpu to use yet. I was originally thinking to go with an atom based Mini-ITX mobo but to get one with 4x SATA ports is hard enough, let alone trying to get one with 5-6x (1 for OS and 4 for data) so I'm thinking maybe I should get a low power Intel or AMD based Micro-ATX mobo with 6x SATA. I'm also thinking I'll setup CrashPlan for online backup from the server (plus directly from my Macbook Pro and my Desktop).

General :: Osx - Finding A Backup Software That Is Most Like Time Machine

Jun 17, 2010

What is the best Linux Mint backup tool that is most like Time Machine (that ships on Macs)?

The one thing that I want it to have similar to Time Machine is that it only backs up files that have been changed, therefore making for faster backups.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Access The Backup Partition On The Other Machine

Jan 27, 2011

I have two desktop machines, each with U 10.10. I want to backup data on my main machine to a partition on the other machine. I am going to use luckybackup for that. Problem is, from the main machine, I cannot access the backup partition on the other machine (but I can see it). I get prompts for passwords and when I enter them nothing happens, it seems they're not valid. Bottom line, I can't access that partition.

Ubuntu :: Back In Time To Backup Home Directory To A Second Hdd That Is Mounted At /media/backup?

May 18, 2010

using Back In Time to backup my home directory to a second hdd that is mounted at /media/backupThe trouble is, I can do this using Back In Time (Root), but not using Back In Time without the root option. This is definitely a permissions issue - it can't write to the folder, but when I checked by right clicking on the backup directory and looking at the permission tab, it said I was the owner

Ubuntu :: Real Time Backup In A Folder Called /home/backup?

Feb 2, 2011

I've tried to google but not much luck. What I would like to do is have anumber of folders on my desktop and their contents, replicated/duplicated into another folder on the same PC in real time. So for example, if I were to change an OpenOffice document in a specific folder on my Desktop it would be replicated/duplicated in real time. If I had three folders on my Desktop A, B and C they would also appear/be backed up (in real time) in a folder called /home/backup. Can this be done?

Ubuntu Networking :: Create File Sharing Between MacBook Pro And Lucid Box For Time Machine Backups?

Mar 19, 2011

I've been trying to create file sharing between my MacBook Pro and my Lucid Lynx box for time machine backups and media server purposes. I followed this guide:[URL]..Everything seems to work with these exceptions: I can see my LucidLynx box in my finder app in my Mac but only when I run these commands from Ubuntu:

sudo /etc/init.d/netatalk restart
sudo restart avahi-daemon

If I restart my LucidLynx box then I can't see anything in finder. I can't log into my LucidLynx box from finder. I don't get a bad username or password error it just tells me the connection failed. *Note if I do enter an incorrect username or password it WILL tell me it's incorrect. I've looked at this link below since some people have used it in theses forums but it's a bit dated[URL]..

Ubuntu :: Restore A TAR Backup To Virtual Machine?

Apr 9, 2011

I'm trying to use this tutorial (URL...) to backup my Ubuntu 10.10 (ext3) operating system. I've successfully gotten it into a TAR file on my external hard-drive, but inside the archive are 2 folders: sda5 and media (/media/sda5/), sda5 ofcourse containing my operating system.

I run VMWare as my virtual machine software, but I could easily run Virtual Box if the situation calls for it. On my virtual machine I created an Extended partition, made a 2GB swap space and the rest is ext3 (ext3 space is mounted as sda1) (at this point, Swap is OFF) here is what I've tried to do inside the virtual machine to restore:

sudo -s
mkdir /media/FROM/
mkdir /media/TO/
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/FROM/


but instead it just creates the directory sda5 under media of the live ubuntu cd Do I need to CHRoot in these conditions? AFTER I get the files successfully into the virtual machine, how do I go about restoring the grub2 bootloader? Right now I haven't tried to restore grub on my hardware, but I would be interested in doing so. There are a vast immense amount of forum posts about this subject, but all are to mixed results. Can anybody tell me the absolute definite way to restore grub2 successfully, I don't want to try something if it's going to mess up my install, whether I've backed up or not.

for further reference, here is a link to the previous (failed) thread I made about this same subject:

Ubuntu :: Back It Time Backup Utility?

Jan 6, 2010

How many of you guys use Back In Time as your backup utility? I tried using it, and it doesn't copy all of the folder contents to the backup drive in one pass. For example, it will copy 26 out of 80-ish gigs of data. To further complete the backup, I have to hit the "Take a snapshot" button to do another pass to add more data to the snapshots. I have to do this a couple times to get all the data.Does anyone else have this issue?

[UPDATE] It appears to copy all of the files at once, so long as you only select one backup location at a time. I was backing up an entire multimedia drive, my home directory, and my usb drive. When I had it set to only do the multimedia drive, it copied all of the files, whereas it wouldn't if I had set it up to back up all 3 locations at the same time. I guess the lesson here is to backup one location, then add another, get another snapshot, and repeat.

Debian :: Configure Backup PC On Jessie

Sep 9, 2015

I have been a windows user for a very very long time, and recently switched to debian. I have so to speak crapped all over my system failing to compile sourcecode properly held broken repos and what not.

So decided to reinstall debian last night, now I have a rather clean fresh installed copy. As I'm a new user to linux, I want to setup a backup system so I can revert to a clean fresh installation when I muck up my system.

Now I have downloaded and installed BackupPC with needed libraries and sitting here trying to configure it on my computer. I have followed this guide: [URL] ....

I have come to this section here:

Server SSH KEY Creation and Deployment:

3. Deploy Key To Client Machine
Copy to client machine

backuppc@server$ scp /var/lib/backuppc/.ssh/ sudo-user@<client machine>:/home/sudo-user/
backuppc@server$ ssh sudo-user@<client machine>

sudo-user@client$ chmod 600
sudo-user@client$ sudo mkdir /root/.ssh
sudo-user@client$ sudo chmod 700 /root/.ssh
sudo-user@client$ sudo mv /root/.ssh/authorized_keys
sudo-user@client$ sudo chown root:root /root/.ssh/authorized_keys


Now I'm not quite sure what to do here as I have no networked computers to deploy to only one machine. Although I want to make a local system backup and upload that to a server I have access to, but would that server be seen as a backuppc server/client?

On this computer here I have generated the id_rsa and located in /var/lib/backuppc/.ssh

looking at this part:
Test ssh connection(On server, as Linux user backuppc)
backuppc@server$ ssh root@<client machine>

How should I interpret @<client machine> should that to be ssh root@ ?

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Configure Kernel For A Many-processor Machine

Jan 2, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 Server installed on a 32 core machine(quad AMD Magny Cours 6128 ), and I was wondering what kernel configuration would optimize its performance?So far, I have only found the obvious configurations that are checked off:

1) Processor type and features ---> Support for big SMP systems with more than 8 CPUs
2) Processor type and features ---> Maximum num of CPUs
3) Multi-core scheduler support

Is there anything else I should consider?I plan on running multi-threaded programs with moderate amount of inter-processor communication, shouldn't there be some options related to the shared memory?
