View Full Version : How do I create an automated backup of system+files

16th February 2006, 06:43 AM
I am running FEDORA CORE 4 on a HP Proliant ML350 server. CPU provide additional HDD slots, so i would like to create a complete bootable system + file backup so in the case of a HDD failure i can reboot and restore the server at no significant loss.
I read the HOW TO's on creating a backup system image, but i assume this is only relevant in restoring a 'perfect' system image to a failed system, so of course this is assume that the hardware (HDD) is fine. In my case I want to protect against possible hardware failure.
Does anyone have any ready-made "How-to's" or links you can provide. I must point out that I am very new to this level of system admin.
