General :: Setup Remote Backup Server?

Apr 6, 2011

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.

Debian :: Encrypted Backup To Remote Dumb Server

Mar 23, 2011

This is not a regular backup. I only want to backup selective directories so personal files (photographs, documents, sourcecode) will be kept safe in case of a total system meltdown. This'll be 15GB max. Basically the digital variant of a fire resistant safe. I looked into duplicity but that requires me to install gpg keys on the target machine, which I can not do. I rather have a solution that just relies on just a working shell account and diskspace on the target server.

I thought of writing a simple script to do the following:
1. Mount remote server with sshfs
2. Mount encrypted container at remote server (LUKS, TrueCrypt?)
3. Loop over predefined directories on local machine and copy to encrypted container (rdiff-backup?)

Based on these requirements:
- Target server is "dumb": only ssh access + diskspace (i.e. no installing of gpg keys)
- Encrypted container should grow/shrink to fit contents
- Encrypted container should be easily decryptable on any OS if you have the password
- Once data leaves client server it should be encrypted: sysadmin on target server should never be able to see unencrypted data.

Ubuntu Servers :: Remote Backup Ftp Server With Confidential Data?

Feb 15, 2011

I already have an ubuntu backup server in my location and need this one server to be backed up remotely in another state. this other location is a helpdesk so there's a danger that they can gain access to confidential data. I'll be setting up this new server as an ftp server but need to set the ftp folder to only allow access to the backup server and me. Because its remote on the helpdesk side, they'll need some access to the file system but need to be completely blocked off from the ftp folder where all the data is at. How can I make sure I can keep them away from my data and still be able to retrieve or copy files over without permission issues between both servers?

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Setup A Backup

Jun 27, 2011

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).

Server :: Backup / Restore - Importing LVM Setup At Destination

Jun 8, 2009

I am doing a LVM replicate to another server.
Example: 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 "" 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?

Ubuntu :: Setup Personal Server To Use As Proxy/Off Site Backup?

Jul 30, 2011

I have a simple issue that I think can be solved with several different methods. I basically want to create a personal server solution that allows me to do two things:

1.) I want to be able to remotely backup data to my server.

2.) I want to be able to pass traffic through it and use it as a proxy.

I am off to college next year and I want to leave a computer/server back home to do the two things stated above. I was thinking of using an Asus Eee Box PC like this:url

I want a low power reliable machine that will only be used as a remote solution. I won't be hooking up a monitor to it (that is, after I set it up).

It will be on 24/7 for easy access.

I will be accessing this server from a Windows 7 based machine.

I do not mind at all installing Linux on my server, but I am not an experienced coder so I will need software with a GUI that can help me set this all up.

Ubuntu Servers :: 9.10 Server - How To Setup Remote Desktop / VNC Via SSH + Command Line

Feb 21, 2010

I am playing around with the idea of being able to use a cloud or instance based service to install Ubuntu 9.10 Server. This will enable me to have remote access via SSH command line.So far, I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 Server + Ubuntu Desktop to a virtual machine. I can access this via SSH and locally via the desktop. However, in the real environment the only access I am going to have initially is via SSH.

I would like to be able to connect using Windows Remote Desktop or VNC (whichever is easier and most importantly - most secure) to the machine.. even though the desktop is on there, I need to somehow configure the remote access all from the command line.I've had a read of various forums and have been trawling support forums for days but can't find a working solution for 9.10 Server or that fits my situation above where I will not have any physical access to the desktop or machine to configure remote desktop. It all has to be done via SSH/command line.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup New Remote Office - Setup Domain Trust Between Two Sites?

Mar 14, 2010

I ended up setting up a basic linux file server as a pdc for that office. Our main office is a windows 2000 ads domain. The two offices are connected with a vpn. I only have two users at the new location so I simply have the linux and samba usernames/passwords setup manually. I would like to know if it is possible to setup a domain trust between the two sites so I don't have to create a username/password in the remote site for every user at the main office to access. I did some searching but came up empty.

General :: Backup / Setup A Second VPN Tunnel On A Fallback Gateway / Firewall On The Client Side

Mar 1, 2011

I've set up a Lan-to-Lan (routed) OpenVPN tunnel. For redundancy I want to set up a second VPN tunnel on a fallback gateway/firewall on the client side. Currently, both sides (server/client) know how to route packets across each others physical LAN. So no NAT is used. When the primary gateway (fw1) is connected to the VPN server all traffic runs via the fw1 tunnel. Than when the secondary gateway (fw2) connects to the VPN server and fw1 is still connected all traffic for fw1 will be delivered to fw2 and effectively destroying traffic intended for fw1. This is of course no problem if I first shutdown (fence) fw1, than set up fw2 to use the gateway IP address from fw1 and set up the VPN tunnel to the VPN server. Effectively replacing fw1 with fw2 on the client side.
However, I can't seem to find a decent howto.

I am also exploring the possibility to let both tunnels active and let OpenVPN (or another tool) decide how to route packets back and forth the different LANs. A virtual IP between two gateway's both running a VPN or something similar. This would be the preferred method of course. However, I don't know how to tackle this one but I'm pretty sure there are people out there who are happy to share their 2 cents.

Software :: Backup A Few Servers And A Bunch Of Desktops Onto One Backup Server?

May 10, 2010

Does anyone know of any decent enterprise level backup solutions for Linux? I need to backup a few servers and a bunch of desktops onto one backup server. Using rsync/tar.gz won't cut it. I need like bi-monthly full HDD backups, and things such as that, with a nice GUI interface to add/remove systems from the backup list. I need basically something similar to CommVault or Veritas. Veritas I've used before but it has its issues, such as leaving 30GB cache files. CommVault, I have no idea how much it is, and if it supports backing up to a hard drive rather than tape.

Ubuntu :: Automounting Remote Drives For Automated Backup

Apr 17, 2010

What's the current best practice for automounting a remote drive for automated backup? I want to use Back in Time and maintain snapshots but it can't do that remotely so I have to mount a folder outside of Back in Time. I have used sshfs from this howto in the past and it works mostly but seems to lose connection and not reconnect a lot. [URL]. Is there a more "modern" way? NFS is horribly unreliable and dog slow for me so it's OUT unless it's changed in the last year.

Slackware :: Automated Remote Backup Of Laptop Using RSnapshot?

May 25, 2010

I have a machine on my network and that machine is a mass storage server that I will eventually use as a media server (to stream movies, videoclips and music on my home theater system). I use slackware 13 on ALL of my machines.

I am trying to automate the backup of the "/home" folder of my laptop onto the mass storage server. I currently use rsnapshot and it works great, but I would like to automate the whole process, even if I am not home or in front of my machines...

Here's what I imagined (in pseudo code):

1) Poll if server is active (up);
1.1) If not:
1.1.1) Wake up the server (WOL);
1.1.2) Wait for the server to boot;
1.1.3) Confirm the server has made it to the login prompt (normal boot); If not, send an alarm via email;
