Re: [Xen-users] Backup running Windows machines - redundancy

Ok, cool. What about reinstalling the system, to rebuild the boot sector ( or better, restore with dd from an earlier backup - let's assume a week old), and then use rdiff to bring the system up to date, from a more recent backup ? To be tested.

Again, the purpose of this thread is to find an incremental backup solution. DD and other methods work fine, but you cannot do daily backups on 8 machines with 100GB storage, and keep those backups for a week or more. Also, if one would like to restore a single file from the image, things will get ugly.

The "easy" solution form your problem is zfs :)

Have you considered using a separate storage server, with nexenta/solaris/whatever-os-that-supports-zfs, and exporting them to your dom0 using iscsi?
