Unix Tip #4255- October 5, 2012

BACKUP INDEX LOCATIONS


Couple words on your backups index.

1) When doing backups on your systems
make sure that your backup indexes are
not stored on the same disks that you
may need to recover files from. If you
loose the disk that the files are on then
you still have your backups safe. If
you loose the disks with your backup
indexes, your files are still okay and
the users will be able to work. You can
then spend the day scanning your indexes
from tape.

2) Make sure that you backup your indexes
occasionally using tar, dump, cpio or
something else other than your normal backup
software.


NOTE: All tips provided are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Tips are submitted by various unix admins around the globe. UGU suggest you read and test each tip in a non-volitile environment before placing into production.
