Is there a way to take a 'snapshot' of sorts and have my backup server mirror my live server, as a sort of testing environment? I know I've seen a lot of answers saying to use rsync. I'm not sure if that would work with what I have in mind.
My live server is currently on Ubuntu 10.04 and my backup server is currently on Ubuntu 12.04.
I'd like to know if is there a way to keep aligned a virtual machine with its backup (saved on another datastore) In order to be able to rapidly turn on the backed-up one on another machine.
My idea is to suspend the machine, make a first copy of the whole VM on the "backup" datastore; then to make a snapshot daily, copying its data (and the delta disk) on the "backup" datastore and consolidating
Hi, so I installed Win 7 on one of my machines to try it out. I was preparing to move some movies and music off my external backup when I realized it's formatted in ext 4 because all my other PCs are running Ubuntu.
I had asked the other day if anyone had used relinux with Fedora, and after some research I realize I may have asked the wrong question (since I've discovered that 0.3 HAS a backup option, but it appears to be on the "Will be deprecated" list).
What I want to do is create a full backup in the form of an ISO file from each of my client's (Fedora15/16) laptops, including ALL
I want to resize the / partition of a computer, and for this I need to use a Live disk.
I've downloaded the ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64.iso file from the Ubuntu website, and I burned it onto a regular DVD.
Then, I've reordered the boot priority from BIOS such that it tries to boot from the DVD drive first and I've saved the new order(I'm almost sure there is no error within this step).
