RHEL Images

Hi,

With ignite and NIM you are able to take images of servers to store on a central repository. Is there a similar product for Linux that allows the easy recovery of servers and import of lvm volume groups following restore/DR exercises ?

TIA

Steve

Re: RHEL Images

Shalom,

1) I've been asking HP to port ignite for 5 years. Bug them, it might help.
2) Free: http://www.mondorescue.org
3) Not free but great: http://www.acronis.com

I've also used Ghost for Linux, which is open source and has nothing to do with the Symmantec product. It worked realy well but was painfully slow.

Re: RHEL Images

Veritas (or Symantec...) do a product called Bare Metal Restore (BMR) which is I believe a plugin to NetBackup 6 which supports imaging and recovery of Linux machines. I hear it's flaky though.

Hi,
I've had great luck with Mondo Archive, which allows me to do bare metal restores. It's Open Source, and seems to have a fair following. http://www.mondorescue.org/ It allows creation of a boot CD to boot an unresponsive system.

Good Luck
Greg
