We (.edu) have a backup server running RH7.3 with 4 Seagate Model STT8000N drives hanging on a Adaptec AIC7XXX card using Travan 8GB Imagion tapes.
I have searched and searched for (free) backup software that can span our 4 drives. I presently use Arkeia on our mail server, but KNOX has about as much drive/tape support as my underware. Taper 6.9b-3 is nice when spanning with one drive, but I don't know if/how to use 4 drives.
Tar and cipo just won't cut it. I want to keep my dir tree on the same tape or in the same archive to speed/ease recovery in the unfortunate case when it's needed. Right now, /home needs 2 tapes and other mounts are comming close.
BRU is perfect, but for the price I would rather do a PO for a couple 160GB IDE HD's and backup to them...yes, I/we are really cheap...tight budget at this univ.
So, anyone know of a backup solution? I'd really appreciate any pointers.
WindersXP is great, if M$ hadn't released it I'd never started using Linux.
