Hi,

I need some help setting up a tape backup system. I have two FreeBSD machines
and on external SCSI Onstream ADR50. Got any clues how I can start a weekly
back up plan here?


Thanks in advance,

Noah

The key would be, a tape a day? Just kidding. If you ca fit it all on one tape, and it's not a long backup - why not do a full backup apposed to some sort of incremental one.

A cron once a day should do the trick (man cron and man crontab) and I would think using dump (man dump) would also do the archiving.
