I highly recommend amanda, built from the tarball ONLY. rpms have
packaging limitations that require serious security compromises to work
around. I use it with most of a 200GB drive setup as 21 virtual tapes,
many times more dependable than cheap tape drives ever were here, and I
went through 5 of the seagate changers before I gave up on tapes. Slow
learner I guess.
Go see <http://www.amanda.org> for more details. Also zmanda.org.
And I have a pair of scripts I use to configure each new release so the
options don't get fubared by my aging memory. I can share those too.
>20K is a lot of BASH code. Wow.
Well, its a bit smaller gzipped:
[root at coyote src]# ls -l /GenesAmandaHelper-0.5.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 amanda disk 10240 Aug 22 05:59 /GenesAmandaHelper-0.5.tar.gz
My network here is a bit more complex than would seem to be required for a
4 machine system, but the 4 machines are all protected by the firewall,
but not from each other, thats totally transparent. I've had 3 attacks
actually make it to the logs, and thats as far as they got before my
machines disappeared from the net when accessed by a packet from the
offending address, in 3.5 years of 24/7 dsl hookup, the router stops
99.99% of them before a byte ever gets sent to the firewall for further
checking. Thats an amazing record.
