I am trying to backup a bunch of mounts before migrating LAS2.1 to LAS4.0(nuking then complete re-install, copy customer's data back over) The drives are on a hp proliant server(dl385&dl585) running RAID 5.
My dream so far is.
1. Offline, boot off cd .
2. mount SCSI RAID 5 drives.
3. make a image from the diffrent mount points and dump into a usb drive.
ie: of=/usr/home if=<usbdrive>/backup/home.img
4. mount the drive later using the loopback interface from the <usbdrive>
ideas suggestions, any proggies out there that already do this?
I know its possible, i just dont know how
