Re: Online backup of Redhat-Linux OS

Hi,
If you have a database like oracle even make_tape_recovery is not the solution to backup it online.
For linux, like Yvan write Mondo is a free bare metal recovery tool and you can backup your OS online. Mondo is develop by a HP man.
It's a very good tool and it's free.
Hope it helps

Re: Online backup of Redhat-Linux OS

if you think you have a valid image for disaster recovery of your database when using ignite, you are sadly mistaken.

i suggest you perform a test on another machine, you will come to the inclusion that your database is useless or at least errornous.

Re: Online backup of Redhat-Linux OS

I highly recommend mondorescue. I have been using for almost a year and it has been extremely useful. You can do a full system backup similar to Ignite. The interface is really easy to use. You can easily write a script that will create an ISO for you. You can then burn the iso (which is bootable) and be back up in no time. I use it for DR and cloning systems. It works great.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

Re: Online backup of Redhat-Linux OS

Mondorescue seems pretty much standard these days; at my customer site they're using SystemImager which also has a long track record, usually for doing golden images, which makes it really similar to Ignite for HP-UX.
yesterday I stood at the edge. Today I'm one step ahead.

Re: Online backup of Redhat-Linux OS

so guys after reading

you can use mondorescue to completely backup your Red Hat 5 while the server is up and running? so no need to take server offline to backup?

Am I right?

thanks a lot
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
