I am unable to comment so I'll make do here. First off, 'Better' is a subjective term at best. What work for me, may not work for you. All we can do is suggest, depending on your company backup policies and other requirements, ie. what needs to be backed-up, how long to keep a back up, how far back to keep, will affect what you are able to do. Things you ...

People often have a misconception about the full backup and log backups. In order for the backup to work in FULL backup recovery model, the t-logs must be used, as during the backups there may still be transactions going on in the database (unless you perform a so called COLD backup when you shut down the database). Oracle uses the same concept when you have ...

I am not sure what you mean by moving your data. If you want to just upgrade from FreeIPA 3.4 to the latest FreeIPA 4.1.2, you can just do it and update the packages/OS (HOWTO article). If you want to move to different operating system without upgrade old one, you will need to create the replica (HOWTO article). If you want to ditch your current FreeIPA ...

Its very simple.You need to generate a script for that. Right click on your database name from the object explorer and follow these steps - Task> Generate Script> Next> Select Specific database objects> select table and click next> Click "Advance A pop up windows will appear named "Advance Scripting Options". Find "Type of data to script" under "General" ...

Taking the -z out of the rsync command which is no compression made the "receiving file list" go so much faster and we had to transfer about 500 GB. Before it took a day with the -z switch.

TLDR - this would be a bad plan for a business. Each sync would be a full sync. Backing up the VHDX file will backup the data, but it isn't a full VM backup. If you restored over the existing VHDX you wouldn't notice, but if you had to restore to a new server, you'd lose the VM configuration. If you just need a point in time, you could do an export from ...

You decide when to make the full and incremental backups and how many backups to keep for that periods count. They are both used to define how many backups to keep. If the period between backups is bigger and the backup to keep stay the same, the backups will be keep for longer. Check this url where they explain how it works lets assume daily incremental ...

[5 years later] I have the same 3ware card. This past month, I've had a drive not come online a few times. This causes the normal need to remove/rebuild (logically, not physically) the RAID5 array. However.. ..twice in the last year, the troublesome drive comes online thinking IT is the RAID5 array and everyone else is missing-- split brain. Delete the ...

1) The best way is migrate using newer replica. Which error did you hit? 2) LDAP data needs update from 3.x to 4.x, you will hit some issues. This will not work. If you need just migrate users, you can try migrate-ds script. http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/18/html/FreeIPA_Guide/using-migrate-ds.html

If you have a UPS you can force the cache on and not use the batter on the raid. If you lose power without a raid card you can get corrupted data, thats what backups are for. And just because you lost power does not mean your system is toast. The cache only holds 256 megs and it gets flushed/written to HD all the time when idle. Its not like it holds ...

Did you know that recent versions of gzip have an --rsyncable option? From the manpage: While compressing, synchronize the output occasionally based on the input. This increases size by less than 1 percent most cases, but means that the rsync(1) program can take advantage of similarities in the uncompressed input when ...

Your best bet may be to send the contents of a ZFS snapshot to tape (e.g. via tar), rather than the snapshot itself. It seems fairly common to take advantage of LVM snapshots to facilitate writing live file systems to tape, and I see no reason why you should not take advantage of ZFS snapshots instead, in much the same way. As you note, using a snapshot ...

Don't focus on the wrong thing! You're safe to replace the disk without a backup... Hardware RAID 1 (2 disks) with a hot-spare (1 disk) means that the spare would have rebuilt from the healthy disk, bringing the array back into good health. You can pull the failed disk and replace it with a new drive. It will rebuild and the spare will go back to hot-spare ...

You say your log does not contain any valuable informations, but you asked robocopy to NOT log filenames and directory names: /NFL /NDL You really should push the logging options to the max until you find what is your problem. /x Reports all extra files, not just those that are selected /v Produces verbose output, and shows all skipped files /fp Includes ...

You should checkout ClusterHQ's Flocker, it leverages ZFS snapshot replication over the network.

I'm wondering if anyone can come up with a simpler, more efficient algorithm or add any ideas for a better way of accomplishing this. Yep - use rdiff-backup, rsnapshot, or some other option that you don't need to maintain. I'm not being obtuse here. I realize you said you want to write your own code. Sometimes the correct answer here is not what you ...

Basically, if you stop the 'Hyper V Virtual Machine Management' service it stops the 'Backing up' error and allows the virtual server to be started. Job Done!

I got rid of ERROR: module is read only by changing the remote path from /var/services/homes/rsync to /volume2/homes/rsync DSM 5.1

We finally were able to restore the backup. We tried so many things that I am not sure what the fix was, but our conclusion is that the problem was the bytea_output setting in postgresql.conf. We think Heroku was using value of 'escape' while our database server was using 'hex' and this caused the problem.

No. Don't do it. Any form of backup that revolves around intentionally failing an array or pool of disks is fraught and irresponsible. If you could provide details about your rsync command line, what you're transferring, the connection between the servers and any other specifics, we may be able to help with a more robust solution.

1) I'm pretty sure there isn't any pre-available automatic way to achieve this. One day AWS Lambda will probably be capable, when it is taught how to receive an event after the RDS backup has occurred. 2) I think you've misunderstood what the RDS backups do. They actually take a snapshot of the RDS instance (i.e. the hidden EC2 instance on which the RDS ...
