Hi peeps, I'm busy preparing my via c3 system to utilize it as a backup file server.
On the motherboard I have two IDE channels and currenntly they have installed a IDE hard disk and a dvd-rom. However, I have bought an extra IDE cable where I will put two IDE hard disks in a master-slave or cable select relation and put that on one of the IDE banks. The other IDE bank I will use to put the primary disk and the dvd-rom in a master-slave or cable-select relation. Then I will install freebsd on the first disk and will use the two spare IDE-disks on the same cable as a geom-mirror. I will use the system then as a central node with rsync to do daily backups of my main data that is scattered around on different desktops on my lan. Does anyone have tips regarding this kind o installation? Do I also need a specialised tool like bacula for the way I want to use it?
