I have a suse 10 installed with apache and mailserver with several users.
The situation is if the machine crashes I have to reinstall and configure it.
I tryied to make a backup with mondo but there are some problems creating the iso and when I teste the iso it doesn't boot completly.
Is there any other way that I can make a boot CD ou DVD that can boot and reinstall everthing my itself.
I see the problem the other way, since this is a part of my job.
1. What is the demand / time limits for restore
2. How to make backup / method, hardware,software to make (1) possible
3. How to configure the system, how to store data, to make (2) possible
At the time any users start to add data, this is already up and running.
Well, maybe you can fix it now, but some things may need some changes.
For a small system, you could use a / partition limited to system stuff
that don't change very much, so an saved partimage file can be a good start.
Some stuff do change, config files and so on, they can be rsync'ed to another
device or something, so it's easy to append it to the restored image.
Your mail/web storage can be on a dedicated partition, and you can rsync it, to a mirror copy every hour if you like (depending on the mailbox format) , and
do backup with anything you like, for example bacula to usb disk or whatever.
Just make a recover plan, there is no "if crash" , things do crash, and expect
it to crash when you really don't enjoy it.
(just when you replace the only backup with a new one for example)
