Drive image for backup & recovery


Hi there,

I have a new HP ML150 G6 Server. I had some trouble getting CentOS to recognise the RAID array, but with some help from a LQ user, I got it sorted :-)

Now I need to make an exact copy of the system. Normally I would use Acronis Echo Workstation, or the newer Acronis Backup and Recovery 10. However, this software doesn't recognise the RAID array either. Acronis tell me that they can't help as HP won't supply the source code for the driver, and a quick phone call to HP Support confirms this.

So, finally you might say, I come to my question: Is there a Linux based tool that can perform the same action as Acronis? Or... does anyone know of alternative software that would do the trick.

Any help very much appreciated.

Thanks!

Might want to check out mkcdrec or mondoarchive. I'd check mondoarchive first, though, since it specifically mentions raid support in some of their docs (well, at least it did last time I checked).
