You are not supposed to configure the failover IP addresses on the host in this scenario. They must be configured only in the guests. Better yet, use your IPv6 addresses to access your VMs from the host. This is going to be more reliable anyway.

Well you have the issue that NTFS will DESTROY your file permissions and may not be even capable of backing everything up. you could use FUSE to create a filesystem on the NTFS drive that will simply be a 'single file' which would allow you to maintain permissions. Otherwise your best bet (unfortunately) would be to use tar/gzip in a 'round robin' ...

I guess that you ask about svnadmin dump because there is no svn dump subcommand in Apache Subversion. You can use svnrdump tool to get the dump over HTTP(S). You will get the dump of all version-history your user account has access to in the repository. You must have direct access to the repository on disk to use svnadmin (i.e. you have to be an ...

I don't know if you use Linux much, but for this scenario I use a Linux live DVD, boot to it, then gzip the entire raw hard drive image (such as /dev/sda) onto external storage. If you want to restore the server later, you do the reverse, overlay the system image over the hard drive. We could go into the specifics if this approach is interesting to you.

Reading the current status through SNMP has proven the most reliable for me. To enable this you have to start keepalived with snmp support: add -x to the deamon options (see /etc/sysconfig/keepalived on RedHat based systems) and install snmpd. You can then reliably query the status via snmpget -Oq -Ov -v2c -cpublic localhost ...

You can't get rsync to stop when it has copied a certain amount of bytes by providing a limit. You can run it normally rsync -a /src/ /dest and when /dest is full it will just stop with an error rsync: write failed on "...": No space left on device (28) You could do something with a script find /src -printf "%p %s\n" >filelist_size Then use ...

I had to solve this problem and created a commercial app for Windows called BucketBacker. It can help you create set & forget scheduled backups of all your buckets. You can try it free for 2 weeks at bucketbacker.com

If destination mail server has empty free-space, then the email can't accept an email. Mail server have to store the email temporarily to queuing it before sending it to next destination. Proper mail server will throw 4xx when it's happened. It means, "I can't accept your mail right now. You may try again later" (RFC 2821 point 4.2.1). When getting 4xx-code ...

So for me, it's always been a lazy man's approach here if you are the only person responsible for monitoring the backups and that instant notification isn't a requirement, ie you don't need to fix the issue right when it occurs. What I do is setup each of the backup software packages to send notifications via email to me. Then I did the following: Create ...

I am a nagios user, and so my method for monitoring my backups (Veeam, Windows Server Backup, Dirvish, mysqldump script,etc) basically amounts to using a passive service, and send_nsca to report the results of a check. Basically for each backup technology I have written a script that is either called as part of the backup finished hook in the backup system, ...

Actually this has changed since december 2014. Microsoft has annoucend that they now do support backing up Win7, Win8 and Win8.1. Quote from azure.microsoft: We are excited to announce the support for backing up data to Azure from Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 machines, using Azure Backup. You can find more details on the supported client ...

I guess one of the better solution would be to upgrade to Subversion to 1.7+ # cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 (Maipo) # rpm -q subversion subversion-1.7.14-6.el7.x86_64 # As Subverison 1.7+, has following: svnrdump - Subversion remote repository dumper and loader And then one can use following: $ svnrdump dump ...

Run a memcheck on your RAM. If you have bad RAM, it will cause random corruption in your filesystem. Run a health check on your hard drives and mainboard

once in a while after a reboot I found fsck would fail on OS disk and booting becoming impossible on many of my servers. Are you doing graceful reboots/shutdowns on these systems? If you are doing so (meaning filesystems get cleanly un-mounted), and you are still seeing corruption, then it's likely that the underlying storage has issues. What ...

This happens to us sometimes, too, and I've always assumed that it's disk contention. Generally, our email is only unavailable for a matter of minutes, at most. Without knowing more about your environment it's hard to say, but perhaps your disks are slower than ours. Also, I'm mainly running incrementals, and don't know if that makes a difference. I ...

Had this problem with old arcserve version, it make a difference if you select a path to get all under (like c:\ all sub dir), than just selecting some under a root (like d:\group\share1, d:\group\share2, etc..) In that case if share1\ is deleted then it throw out a error. nb. From the arcserve version I was using I had to click two time on the [+] sign ...

Create a user account (or add an existing user account) and add it to the Backup Operators group and run your task as that user.

Can you ssh on remote machine? If yes, you can write script remover.sh #!/bin/bash sshpass -p '********' ssh m***d@******.co.uk: "ls -t custom_backups/backup-*.sql | sed -n -e '31,1000 s#^#custom_backups/#p' | xargs rm -f" How it works? ls -t custom_backups/backup-*.sql List all files sorted by time - oldest last | sed -n -e '31,1000 ...

I use two solutions for this problem: create one backup for each day, as mentioned above. Problem is - that you can't have here older backups. create backups in directory, and then - using script - i keep (for example): backups from last 30 days backups from every sunday not older than 1 year backups from every 1 day of month everything else - remove.

There's plenty of example scriptlets out there that show how to do this, just websearch for "rotate backups" examples. Also, you probably have at least a template script on the very machine you are trying to do this: most distros come with log-rotating capabilities, you can find inspiration in those scripts too :-) So look in the crontab to see if any ...
