It has a 200GB HDD and is FAT32 formatted and provides access with FTPmount the folders and rsync to the mount point.
How do we rsync the backups to the existing Backup folder from my / our
notebook/s to this TCP/IP connected unit ?
I'm not certain of all the implications of backing up ext3 to fat32
over samba - it could be some metadata is lost - I'd want to research
Thanks for your feedback and concerns !
I have absolutely no idea how to get the TCP/IP unit visible nor do I
know how to mount without any more specific data !!
Have tried a few net commands without fortune ;-(
Regarding the implication of backing up ext3 to fat 32:
Well I am interested to hear and learn about but don't worry about it !
My primary backup/s will be a rsync from ext3 to ext3 to an external USB
An additional backup will be tar to the same unit also ext3 to ext3 !!!
ext3 to ext3 ???
I wrote ext3 to FAT32 !!!
rsynch I do this. I first make certain
that the things I am going to rsynch from and to are attached to this
I wrote external HDD connected with TCP/IP !!!
You do that with a terminal in which you write $sudo mount -t
ext3 /dev/sda? /mnt and that gets it like it is part of this computer.
Another is if the thing has a USB cable then you plug it in and find it
in the /media/ directory.
It's either FTP or Samba !!!
Now your ready to use rsync.
Like you replied here ...
... nothing will work, sorry !!! ;-(
Here is what I am using with nothing
but success. I have mine in exacutable files. The one for backup is:
karl@karl-hardy:~$ cat /root/bin/rsync-media
# This file is designed to backup my Ubuntu to the USB Hard Drive using
# Karl Larsen, 8 june 08
# rsync -vaHz --exclude '/proc' --exclude '/sys' --exclude '/media' /.
# This is what works on my computer
# rsync -vaH --exclude '/proc' --exclude 'sys' --exclude 'home'
--exclude '/mnt' --exclude '/media' /. /mnt
# This goes to the USB hard drive
rsync -vaH --exclude '/proc' --exclude 'sys' --exclude 'home' --exclude
'/mnt' --exclude '/media' /. /media/disk
I have two that go to /mnt or /media/disk and even the first one sent to
me by a good guy on the list.
I gotta success rsync from my /dev/sda? to my USB connected external
an identical unit as the one connected by TCP/IP !
The difference are only identifiers (LD140 for TCP/ip & LD149 for USB)
respective IP addresses: 192.168.xxx.140 and 192.168.xxx.149
I already gotta a partial success with this TCP/IP access with Places /
Connect to Server ! ;-)
Unfortunately it does not last since I am inexperienced with these NW
commands and stuff !! ;-(
Connecting to Server offers 7 service types !!!
Too much for me greenhorn / newbie. ;-D
So have fun and it sure works good, Karl
However, thanks for your efforts, Karl
