mysql mount point - other issues
We run rsync to make backup system -
Having odd mounting points defeats the logical system organization of mysql server and data storage.
Mounting the mysql disk at the /var/lib/mysql works, however the system organization and backups need to be logical
The backup scheme is to run as script that call rsync - backs up all clients to server. Alterntely backs up server to two disks alternating between disks each day.
With the backup running at 3 AM and 12:30 PM at noon we only risk the loss of a
1/2 day of work. A third backup is to an off site system.
One thing suse needs to do for yast2 is create a way for users to define where some things need to be located.
such as a yast2 data base "rc" file that a user can create using a templet.
