Dear All

I have been using various backup packages including rsnapshot and
related packages like rs-backup.

The backup problem is a rather small one: a network of a bunch of
linux boxes with multiple users including laptops which may be switched
on or not and a dreamplug (or similar) with a big disk to serve as a
backup server running 24/7.

There are a number of wiki available to serving as a guideline for
configuration. While this is no rocket science, having configuration
on each machine and maybe for each user is anything but convenient nor
is it a good model to document what has actually been configured.

I wonder if someone is aware of a centralized sort of one stop
configuration for the whole network with rsnapshot. Which could possibly
just generate a bunch of files that would have to be copied to the
machines in the network.

Usually, if something in Linux associated management is useful,it has
already been done.

May be I am lucky.

Thanks in advance

Redil

The normal technique, mentioned here numerous times over the years, is
a central configuration file "included" by the host specific
inclusions. I personally used a setup that browsed DNS and set up host
specific wrapper files, with their times slightly skewed to reduce
rsnapshot server load.
