scp Good arugments?
I need to back up an entire OS (not so much for the OS but for all the user-made data that consists of conf files and all that (/usr/home is mounted via NFS so that doesn't need backing up)
and I was wondering what you guys thought about this.
Basically move EVERYTHING within System A's / to a folder on System B's drive (like /root/sys1backup/*)
i will be using scp with the following arugment;
p tp preserve rights
r recursive (there are a LOT fo directories)
C compress the connection
Now, direcotires like /proc are probably useless hey? is there a way to excldue them (if it's not safe to copy it) or is it fine to copy all these files?
What are your thoughts?
