Backups to another machine?


i have a mail server running fedora 4 and a 2nd machine on the same domain running ubuntu server (recently built). i want to schedule backups to run daily from the mail server to teh 2nd machine incase the mail server ever crashes.

how can i set it up so that the mail server (x.x.x.1) is completely backed up to the 2nd machine (x.x.x.2) each day

thanks in advance

Probably a combination of rsync and cron.
cron to schedule/activate, rsync to do the actual copying.
