2 hard drive in system mirror 1st hard drive


I am actually using sco UNIX and I am trying to install a 2nd Hard Drive. The purpose of this second hard drive is to backup the first hard drive on the second hard drive everynight. I am looking for a process that will do this. The other issue is I want to be able to change the hard drive boot sequence in the cmos so I can use the second drive if the first drive fails.

Why set it up to backup everynight.. you'd probably better off setting up a RAID1 for mirroring of each drive.

You can use rsync to do this.
