I don't run BackupPC on SME itself anymore (I use it to backup a
lot of SME Servers though). But the contrib should still work:
If you haven't been following backuppc development, there is a
newer 4.x version with the advantage of no longer using filesystem
hardlinks to de-dup the archived files plus some other improvements.
I know, I maintain EL6 and EL7 packages for it
(http://repo.firewall-services.com/centos/), but have nothing SME
specific for this version.
Well, that sucks for us as a whole. I know you are running a
business, and have the need to provide value add reliable services.
For the distro as a whole, I don't feel we have to good solid backup
solution, anymore. Flexbackup and DAR just don't seem to be cutting
it. Flexbackup is way too slow for large amounts of data. Don't get
me wrong, I have personally never had any issues with flexbackup.
When it works, and can complete within the backup window, it works
great for me, and restores have also always worked, DAR seems
inconsistent from some of the things I've seen in the forumsm but I
don't think I really have any choice but to do some additional
testing. That is just my opinion, I'm sure there are those of you
that are running this pretty reliably.
So, I'll have to find time to do more DAR testing on my own, and see
if I can live with the built in method, and also do some testing with
backuppc starting with the old contrib and seeing if that can be
updated to use the newer versions. Not having any experience with
backuppc, I'd want it to backup to a CIFS share, like DAR can do, then
I'd need to be able to restore single files, and a whole system. I'm
not a coder, so I'm not 100% sure how to get those pieces incorporated
at the moment.
I do appreciate all that responded.
