Make sure that you have SSH access to
backupstorage.lan.soleus.nu (the local LAN variant to reduce load on the WAN interface). Add something like below to
mkdir /mnt/backup-crypt mount /dev/mapper/backup /mnt/backup-crypt mkdir /mnt/backup-crypt/backup
|Note that the The script below assumes an fstab entry for this filesystem exists.|
Finally, close everything:
After this setup, the shell script below should allow you to make backups. Of course the precise way and what to backup can be adapted in the
backup_run() function. You can for example create LVM snapshots of your logical volumes and backup these to guarantee a consistent state, or use hardlinks to keep full backups from multiple dates with little overhead, à la rsnapshot. I, Jaap Eldering, author of this script, am doing both these things; feel free to contact me for more details.
