Thread: Archiving/Backup Application

  1. #1

    Default Archiving/Backup Application

    I am running Suse10.1 on an ibm rs/6000. I have a DDS3 tape drive. Is there any out-of-box software that will archive files automatically on to the drive? Or will I have to create some kind of script?

    The drive appears to be recognized in the hardware list. Next I intend to, at least, copy some files to the drive to see if it is operational.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi
    Sounds like your running an enterprise version SLED/SLES 10 SP1? There
    is a separate forum http://forums.novell.com as this is openSUSE

    There should be a YaST tool for this, else you could look here;

    or
