comment Looking for suitable backup solution Mac OS X to offsite Centos 6 server 1TB of working data
whoopis.com/howtos/rsync-hfs-howto nice article getting rsync to work with resource forks. Maybe there is a rsnapshot version too

Nice catch on the resource fork thing! I never realised this and just checked my backups to find any files using resource fork data are 0kb files. Luckily they are only font files so not end of the world. Looking at crash plan now.

I like this. Only thing its missing is the GUI for easy restoration. If anything else doesn't come up then I'll definitely test this out.

@Dan maybe so but to me its a solution that comes at an additional cost. A cost that's not needed when we have 2TB of offsite backup already paid for.

Not ideal really. Although I say 1TB that does often reach 1.2TB until some archiving is done. The cost of HDDs are very expensive ATM and buying 10 1.5TB external HDDs isn't cheap. Plus backing up to HDD's over USB2 is going to be slower than out tape setup. This solution doesn't tick many boxes. I know there are better solutions out there.

changed to download the x86_64 version rather than the i386. When trying to install it fails with this error: warning: rpmts_HdrFromFdno: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 0608b895: NOKEY Public key for epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm is not installed

@lain - Can you show me how I would do this in my bash script? I'm no expert at Bash scripting. I know that using $$ would return the PID of the script but how do i check if that PID is running and how do I check it against the file? Thanks

comment Rsync when run in cron doesnt work. Rsync between Mac Os x Server and Linux Centos
Thanks. This worked. I miss understood that when it was asking for a password I thought it was asking for the password of the existing connection setup.

Ok I'll try this. I assume by just pressing enter when it asks for a password is making a key with no password?

comment Mac OS X 10.5.8 Server - How to save static route
I cannot test if this is working as I have opted for another way of dealing with static routes on my main gateway.

comment How to setup Mac server to use two gateways
Thanks for this late entry. I dont know why I didnt think to put in the route on the main router to forward any traffic for the offsite IPs to the second gateway. Doing this also solves my other issue of static routes not sticking on my Mac server. The main router remembers its static route.

I had already tried something like this but it didnt work. But this post seems to have a few more steps so I've given it a go but I cannot test till later when I can reboot server. Will let you know if this works. Fingers crossed.
