I found this link:
And that looks like what I need...but I'm a complete noob to Linux and don't want to screw anything up.
I'm basically wanting to backup a Linux folder to a Windows folder on a remote Windows 2008 Server and schedule it. I need to make sure it captures open files if possible and I need it to create a log of what it backed up (and place that log in the remote Windows folder)
SERVER = Gentoo Linux 1.12.9
I'd like to know the following:
- How do I take this script and put it on the Linux server? Copy/paste it into what program? Vi?
- What do I call the script (filename.ext) in order for it to run? Do I need to place it in a certain directory on the linux server?
- Once I test the script and can confirm it works, how do I schedule it to run?
- What about the backup logging...?
