I've the need to setup a differential backup process from a range of remote HP-UXes to a central RHEL5 server.
I'd happily go with rsync, problem is,
stock HP-UX 11.11 has no built-in rsync and I don't have permissions to install any software on the remote stock HP-UXes.
How should I approach this?
fbackup (HP-UX exclusive)
cpio (available in RHEL5, allows backing up only the files which changed, but always grabs the totality of the file)
ssh remote_user@remote_host 'find /u01/engine/logs/ -type f -name "*.log" | cpio -o | gzip -' | cpio gunzip - | -idmv
Those solutions don't really answer my incremental (bandwidth efficiency) problem do they?
