Trying to get by with just 1. I guess I could do 1:1 NATing.

comment USB Flash Drives As Boot Drives In File Server
Software RAID5 (or RAIDZ in ZFS) can't be booted from, so one needs another 2 disks for the OS. Even though only a small amount of storage is needed, the cost for the smallest disks OEMs provide is still high for small jobs like this.

comment USB Flash Drives As Boot Drives In File Server
All three Dell PowerEdge servers I've looked at have internal USB ports with BIOS boot support. One drive could be inside and another at the rear. This is for a small business without the infrastructure to do PXE booting.

comment Run an rsync replication script under a user other than root
One downside of using the force-commands-only option is that it could possibly break functionality. The client (rsync) isn't specifying the command to be executed. I'm wondering if you can use the forced-commands-only to drop a connection into a jail, one where the client can specify the command, but only has access to the rsync binary.

I guess with this comes a different question: Do you push backups out from the production server or pull them in from the backup server? To me, pushing them out makes more sense, so there isn't an automated remote connection into your production server.
