I've fixed this on github.com/s3tools/s3cmd master branch. It was introduced in the new signature v4 code, but does not need to be a warning(), but instead lowered to info() which won't output on normal runs.

Always stick to one brand of tapes. Different manufacturers use different coatings which can interact and require additional cleaning. However in this case it sounds like the drive needs to be serviced or replaced.

Use common sense. Replace the unit or leverage the manufacturer/warranty contacts. The behavior you're experiencing is not common or acceptable. Imagine this were a common kitchen appliance like a microwave or your refrigerator. Would you tolerate a weekly failure of those? Nope... So apply the same logic to your malfunctioning tape drive :)

Although this is 4+ years old, most of these "Answers" are "You should have backed up your file", I have decided to present an actual answer to the question of "How do I undo a file I have overwritten at BlueHost?" Here is the link to their solution. https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/719 It is a little outdated, so here is the difference to the solution as ...

First off, the use of telnet is NOT recommended as your password is sent in cleartext, and anyone looking at your traffic can sniff it. IF you want to use FTP, make sure it is enabled under IP > Services. Then go to your terminal, and export the file using the command export file=myname. The file will then be under the File menu as myname.rsc. You then ...

Veeam can compress and dedupe your data, so it makes a best guess on how big your compressed and deduped backup set is going to be. That's the "Estimated full backup size". As for the Estimated Required Space, what version of Veeam is this? I believe there was a bug circa 2010 that miscalculated disk sizes based thin provisioned disks.

you can used cisco built in command 'archive' to backup router and switch configuration but you can only save the archived files to FTP, HTTP, HTTPS, RCP, SCP, TFTP locations. I configured a FTP site for my setup and you can configured it to create backup file after certain time interval or when Write Memory command is issued.

Most likely, the NAS is too old and doesn't support the SMB 3 protocol. See this thread for details ...you might be out of luck on this one.

Since the '/export' command dumps the configuration to stdout, I do always backup my mikrotiks vía ssh this way: ~$ ssh admin@router /export > mikrotik.conf

You can either just write a script that will do this for you or use services like backupsetc.com which allow you to automatically backup your accounts within their infrastructure and then you can get them from there any time you want, and it's fully automated.

The best course of action would be to ask the party that's making the proposal. We would have no idea of what they meant by that statement - they aren't using industry insider terminology that would make sense to someone in the "know".

There were a few efficiencies to be made to this script: On my system at least, the perl buffer reads are 8k, so use 8192 block size. autoflush so the local end doesn't block until the remote output buffer is 'full', as we are feeding lzop the buffering seems pointless. ssh -i /root/.ssh/rsync_rsa $remote " perl -'MDigest::MD5 md5' -ne ...

That's about right. The interface to an LTO-1, LTO-4, LTO-6 doesn't really differ... The Unitrends software/appliance is likely Linux and it sees the same device regardless of LTO type. You should be fine as long as you adjust capacity to reflect the size of your LTO-6 cartridges.

It's a fairly broad question, and it depends a lot on how much budget you've got to work with. It also depends a lot on quite why you want annual backups. I'm going to guess there's some compliance constraint on data retention? Personally I don't think well of the 'removable drive' approach to backups - it's actually not all that reliable, because of ...

SF problem with SU solution :D Ensure thunderbird computer can't connect to IMAP server (turn off wifi/pull the LAN cable). You don't want to Thunderbird synchronize itself with outdated backup. Run Thunderbird. While offline, copy new email from IMAP account in Thunderbird to Thunderbird Local Folder. It will backup the email to your computer. Connect ...

but when I delete the configuration from the controller and try to retrieve it I can't Did you perform this configuration deletion while the disks were still seated? If so, this does not simulate the config "going missing" from the controller - this action actually clears the config from the controller and from the drives. To test this accurately, ...

If you switch for a same controller the configuration the disk got will be use, then if you switch a disk in the raid, then the controller will re-built. You can't make a copy, to switch on another controller platform at all. And you must note where your disk was placed (slot 0, etc..) Make a full acronis/ghost, or those kind of image of your volume, and ...

No, this is not going to work because the disk /dev/sda will be changing during the dd run and you end up with an inconsistent image. Simpler explanation: Tell him that if you create a file towards the end of the backup, it will not be be backed up as the information where a file is located is at the beginning of the image and will not include the new file. ...

Duplicity doesn't support remote sources, so there is no way to do this without tricks like suggested by @blubberdiblub. It have disappointed me when I found the issue, although they don't call this as an issue: https://answers.launchpad.net/duplicity/+question/143932

I've organized my backup strategy around rdiff-backup over NFS. It lets you access your backups as a simple mirror of your file system with the ability to get previous versions too.

It's always possible to do a partial restore of a backup. I'm not familiar with Bacula but I will outline the general methods: Most backup software actually allows you to do a partial restore of a full backup, by design. If you run the restore command for Bacula then I'm sure it will allow you to select a list of files or directory trees to restore. "Halp, ...

Hdfs is by design replicated, usually on 3 nodes minimum so if you have 3 nodes the data is replicated on all three already. Of course these nodes should be on different physical servers. Then it is not likely to fail or all 3 should fail at once. To replicate you current hdfs, you could simply add nodes to the hdfs service on other servers and the data ...

I personally have done it a lot of times. It's absolutely safe once you use VSS (application aware). The second KB which was recommended by Veeam is worth to be checked.

Depends on you definition of "elegant". You could tell the director to always backup only "/for_backup" directory, and then use commands like mount --bind /home/xyz/somedir /for_backup/someplace and/or ln /home/xyz/somefile /for_backup/someplace2 or similar tricks to specify what you want to backup. you could tell director to backup everything ("/"), but ...

If you set up the servers like it was described in the ispconfig documentation then all the emails are in the folder /var/vmail/. You only have to backup this folder along with all subfolders. A restore can be done by doing a copy of the old mailbox folder content in there again. The structure is like this: /var/vmail/domain.com/before_at_sign

This is what we did: We bought a NAS with Windows 2008 storage server R2 on it. Created an ISCSI target which is in fact one large file (.vhd) Mounted the ISCSI target and moved all the files to the virtual disk. Now we backup the vhd with our back-up software. To backup one big file is much faster than a lot of small files. You can install the backup ...

You could create a batch file stopping all the relevant services and use Task Scheduler to run this before your backup. Then create another batch file to start all the services up and schedule this for when the backup is complete. For your task ensure that you set it to run with elevated privileges or the services will not be stopped/started. For example, ...

We make daily backups of all VM's to a local disk (i.e. not on the same storage array that all the VM's run off), with a retention of a week. Once a week we copy the newest daily backup to tape, which we store off-site and rotate weekly and monthly, for a maximum retention of 1 year. A best practice is the 3-2-1 rule: Have at least three copies of your ...

For now at least, they are basically equivalent, assuming the mongod is not doing anything else significant. To explain, in versions 2.6 and below, the mongorestore utility effectively contains the mongod binary which allows it to act as a mongod and insert to data files without a mongod running already. The advantage a solo mongorestore usually has is ...
