comment How do I back up root directory with ReadyNAS?
The option I use is "Remote: Rsync Server". Since I'm doing a remote backup with rsync, I don't think "Volume: c" would make sense. If I select "Volume: c", the "Host" field gets disabled and other pertinent fields go away as well. Let me know if I'm misunderstanding.

comment Giving user read permissions everywhere (Linux)
If some files must not be readable by anyone other than their owners, how is backing up as root better than creating a user who has read permissions everywhere? Backing up as root seems to be a violation of the principle of least privilege, since the backup user doesn't need to write or execute anything, just read.

All the operations performed by my backup user are pre-canned, so I don't have the option of using sudo.

Exactly! I don't want the backup user to own every file, nor do I want every user to have read access everywhere. For some reason the others couldn't understand that. I understand the difference between chown and chmod. I just want the backup user to somehow be able to read every file so it can do its job.

comment Single sign-on for intranet?
I'm sure this is the best answer. However, the stuff in those links is over my head. I'm going to do what I did with my DNS server when I couldn't figure it out with the internet: buy the book.

Is that a Windows thing? I'm on Linux.

comment How do I only require LDAP login once?
Yes, they are on different virtual hosts. Now it's so much clearer. Thank you for explaining how that works. Any suggestions how how to implement a single sign-on feature?

comment Is there an easy way to periodically test DNS?
I forgot to mention: This DNS server is only on my LAN so things like that aren't an option for me.
