Unix Tip #4321- January 9, 2014

BACKUP THE REMOTE ESSENTIALS


There are many programs, data files, and especially
license files that sit out on remote workstations
and servers that you may should be backing up
remotely.

If backing up the entire system puts a strain
on your network, make sure that all the essential
files at least get backed up.

Some files may be
/var/flexlm
/usr/local/flexlm
/var/netls
/var/license
/etc/passwd
/etc/hosts
/etc/groups
/etc/netgroups
/etc/shadow
/vmunix
/kernel
etc....
