Rsync-backup client install
Install ssh, rsync, and rsync-backup-client rpms (see http://www.stearns.org
Install ssh-keyinstall on client to create a backup key with
- ssh-keyinstall –s backupserver –u root –c /usr/sbin/rsync-backup-server
Because of the way the way the client gains access to the server, passwords cannot be used. When the client on 126.96.36.199 logs into the server, the backup process moves into /backups/188.8.131.52/current/ . Running the backup with password authentication bypasses this step, with potentially disastrous results to the servers main drive.
