on my server I have atMail and a intranet site being hosted using mySQL for the database locally, and obviously backing it up would be a good thing. I got the backup package from the list if you use the add/remove software called dump-0.4.etc.. can't seem to find much on how to use it, set it up, nothing. Granted I could be looking for the wrong thing which I'm sure is the case. As of now it's looking like a USB drive is going to be my only option, that will change in the future as this "project" goes further (we are a windows shop trying out Linux, and the next step is going to be adding another server that's a file server at that point we'll probably go to NAS for the backup and then transer that to a USB for offsite/secondary backup).
i`m trying to set up a Central Backup Server with BackupPC installed on CentOS 5.6 x86_64, My CentOS has Samba3x / Winbind integrated with Active Directory i found this nice Wiki http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/BackupPC , to get my BackupPC installed. after installing RPMForge's repo and settin` up the priorities to the repos, http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities i get the following error regarding Samba3x Conflicts , i dont wanna miss up my Samba Configuration to install BackupPC, even --skip-broken option does not work for me
looking for a bit of assistance from those that know. i would like to setup an offsite backup server preferably using my current ubuntu 10.10 server.i would like something that has a client that can be used on windows PC's and that is managed so i can controll bandwidth and storage space.it will only be used for storing important files and not full backups of machines.i thought about using something like comodo backup for the clients and just setting up and FTP server but just wonderd if people know of a better solution.
I have 2 servers. One is an operational CentOS + cPanel server and the other is a blank CentOS server. I want to use cPanel's backup suite to backup our customers accounts but I want to do it so the blank server is mounted to the cPanel server, rather than an FTP backup. If that makes sense. I believe from previous experience that NFS is the way to go but I'm not sure.
I am doing a LVM replicate to another server. Example: server1.foo.com has / , /boot , swap and few LVM partitions. All are in /dev/sda disk of size 80GB. /dev/sda5 is a LVM partition which has only one vg00 and it has 2 LV's (/var and /usr) and a SAN storage connected to this server which has around 500GB of single partition(a LV partition) called /data and its under vg00 .
Now I have build another server called "server2.foo.com" with same RedHat OS version - RHEL 4 and want to import the same LVM setup at destination. Down time or unmounting the filesystem is not a problem (but am trying to reduce the down time as much as possible). Is there any way that I can take a proper snapshot of whole LVM disk and restore with same setup at destination without losing the data and the lvm file system layout?
I have windows 2003 with high memory and HDD in local network which i want to make it as backup server. there are few linux and windows clients which are all running in redhat,centos and windows 2003. As i want to setup netware backup, is there any best open source backup s/w available so that the backup would run periodically. i need to isntall backup server in my windows 2003 and backup client in other linux and windows 2003. any free backup software.? i went through zmanda but that is not freely available.
We are trying to set up a NIS server on a CentOS system. We need to have a NIS server which can provide NIS authentication to a couple of clients. We are practically new to all this stuff.
Just googled to find some ideas about installing ypserv and ypbind and portmapper. We did all that and also started them successfully. But now the clients are not able to join to the NIS domain . The error log states "YP_DOMAIN NOT BOUND".
I guess we have not entered the /etc/yp.conf, /etc/hosts files properly. Please let us know the detailed steps to setup a NIS server .
Also, please let us know what entries should go into the different /etc/<file_names>? What is meant by HOSTNAME in the /etc/hosts file?
Is there any other files which need to be changed? Are we missing any steps?
Also to add-on, while executing the ypinit command we faced the following error:
At this point, we have to construct a list of the hosts which will run NIS servers. localhost.localdomain is in the list of NIS server hosts. Please cont inue to add the names for the other hosts, one per line. When you are done with the list, type a <control D>. next host to add: localhost.localdomain next host to add:
I'm looking for a simple solution to backup my CentOS Server (5.x) on a daily base to a mounted disk. I found the glastree tool but I have no clue if it will work on CentOS.All recommendations, tipps, hints and maybe scripts are welcome. Unfortunatelly I'm an Linux newbie and starting with Linux CentOS a couple of weeks ago
I have re-installed our operating system (CentOS 5) ,what is the best way to restore our Samba server? Can it be as simple as copying the smb.config and smbpasswd files back into the /etc/samba directory? That's what I am hoping. If I just copy the smb.config and the smbpasswd files back to the samba directory will the machine trusts, users and passwords just work? If not, what is the proper procedure for restoring. Actually i want to make CentOS 5.3 as my Domain Controller, I want to test all Scenario in case of any disaster of DC before putting it into production environment. I have some queries as:
1. Is CentOS 5 is more stable than RHEL 5 etc.
2. How can i take back up of entire samba server if need it in case of any disaster. How can i restore it.
3. How can i use logon scripts like GPO in windows servers.
4. How can add users in samba server and linux at one time with one command.
5. tell me any Web based samba administration tool other than SWAT.
Is there any way to setup the Centos Directory Server without an internet connection?? i tried using the command: yum install centos-ds
but this just tries to connect to the internet to to download the packages. Is there a site where i can find the package so that i can copy it to my server and install it or is there some other way to do this?
Have been playing with Centos 5 and finally got it installed and have done most of the updates. Before I proceed much further it would be nice if I could create a backup/install disc of how it is now. No Data,just the setup and software used etc.Have a dvd rw on the server.I recall mondo rescue installed years ago on a linux server we used.
I have a CentOS 5.5 server that has just recently been updated to 5.6 running PostgreSQL 8.4 and Drupal for an internal website. The server is also acting as a shared network storage between the Linux server and Windows desktops with Samba.
I just recently purchased a license to run Symantec Backup Exec System Restore 2010 for Linux and the only operating systems that are supported are RedHat and Suse Linux.
Does anyone know of a nice open source solution that we can use to create backup images of the server?
In the event of a server crash, we want to be able to rebuild the server via a bit-by-bit backup image.
I have 2 dedicated servers, one with RTL8111/8168B (rev 02) and one with RTL8111/8168B (rev 01) both running centos 5.3, the problem is like this, all things run great on the dedicated server with NIC RTL8111/8168B (rev 02) until we run backup (cpanel backup) after the backup is finish the server lags , no high load, just lags, the server is a 8 GB ram, i7 quad core, so there is no load problem or someting like this, the second server has also cpanel on it and it has no lag but it has RTL8111/8168B (rev 01) , we think that the problem is with the RTL8111/8168B (rev 02) should we update the driver ?
Here is the output from it: 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5 x86_64 x86_64 06:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 02) .....
EDIT-Forgot to mention that I did Xorg -configure before testing the config. Only errors I got were:
(EE) LoadModule: Module ati_r500 does not have a ati_r500ModuleData data object. (EE) Failed to load module "ati_r500" (invalid module, 0)
Linuxquestions--I posted this over on the CentOS forums, which are not as booming. Then I remembered these forums for when I had my VPS way back when and you guys were pretty helpful, of course expected me to mostly do my own reading which I dont mind its just having a hard time understanding some of the things in what I was reading. I even believe I came here with this problem before but abandoned the issue because my VPS was not powerful enough or something of the sort, but this was many years ago also on CentOS using apt. Now using yum which I like much better.
I am trying to set up a mail server on centos5 using sendmail and dovecot, and eventually spamassassin and some antivirus filter as well. I'd also like to get the proper secure auth mechanism set up at some point too. But for starters, I've been having a lot of difficulty trying to even connect to the mail server from a client computer in the local network. I installed Eudora on the client and after some tweaking in dovecot I was able to connect to the mail server, but then when I try to send an email I get a "connection refused" error, with nothing being logged on the server that I can see.
The last time I set up a mail server was Fedora Core 2, so the configuration files have changed a bit to say the least, and I can't really refer back to those to set up this new server. Does anybody know of a good step-by-step doc on getting the mail server going? I've read the man pages and other various readme's, but these really only list out the available options with no really good explanation of what needs to be done to get the mail server going. If there isn't a full write-up on how to do this, I'll put something together when I'm finished so others can use it in the future.
We have two CentOS 5 servers in production (web and database). We are setting up a single staging server that will mirror the configurations of these servers as closely as possible. What is the easiest way to ensure the exact same software and configs as the production servers are setup on the new staging server. Our contracted data center provider has already informed us that they do not perform images and NO we do not have physical access to the machines. It is undetermined whether we will be virtualizing the staging server into two virtual servers yet, so for the purposes of this post lets assume we are not. I'm seeking a faster/more precise method than doing this by eye and hand.
After I spent some time discovering The BIG BANG of Universe and The Meaning of Life :
I managed somehow to create a script to make some backup of files on server and TAR it and then FTP the archive to another location FTP server and then emails result.
It also measures time needed to complete it and deletes archive older than XX days (set in find -mtime +20) and makes incremental backup every weekday and FULL on Sundays (which suits me bcoz no heavy load).
Files for TAR to include and exclude are in txt files listed each line separate name:
I have a CentOS5 server with a 1tb hard drive.There is only 80gb of data on that huge drive and now I want to make a bare metal recovery backup using AcronisMy question is, how can I estimate the amount of time the backup will take and the size of the image file? Is it based on the size of my drive or is it based on the amount of data on the drive?
I am currently involved in setting up an openldap server on a CentOS platform. I am having some issues with getting it set up to the point that I can remotely manage the server via phpldapadmin in a web browser. I am running into an issue when starting the slapd daemon.
I have installed the nagios by FAN 2.0 CD. In this distro all the required softwares are bundled. Now i do not know where to start. How can i monitor my other server on the network. I have google on the internet but it is not giving the clear idea. Is there any document on the net or how to which can show that how to configure nagios with centreon or originally from changing nagios files.
