My mail server is just a test at the moment but I am trying to learn as I am going so when the time does come for a move I should know more than i do now, if you see what I mean?
First, the extra forward-slash could be causing the problem - so remove the on in this line:
Secondly, ;), do you have the NFS client installed (it's not by default)? Try running the showmount command - if it doesn't work then you need to install nfs-common I believe.Code:
mount -t nfs $NFSHOST:/$NFSPATH $NFSMOUNT
Running this command once you have it installed should give you details of the NFS exports:
showmount -e 10.60.28.53
See I told you I don't get linux!
It works thanks webman. It was that nfs was not installed. Duh!
I now have a backup on my mac server's oversized direct attached storage.
Now then time to try to work out cron to automate this task. One question, it is cron I use isn't it? :D
The paid for version will allow online backup of the system with it's own utilities.
LVM Administrator's Guide The conecpts and CLI will apply to ubuntu if the gui doesn't.
Prepares a block device (partition, RAID volume, etc) for use as an LVM disk (in this case I'm telling Linux to use the whole of /dev/md0, a RAID volume - this will wipe any data from the entire RAID array):
Creates a Volume Group (here called xenVG, but use any name you like), ready to create Logical Volumes inside of:
vgcreate xenVG /dev/md0
Creates a logical volume (4GB in size, called ACSSPOOL007OS, and uses disk space from the xenVG Volume Group we created a minute ago):
lvcreate -L4G -nACSSPOOL007OS xenVG
This will create a new "disk" device called "/dev/xenVG/ACSSPOOL007OS" that you can use as you would any other disk block device, i.e. instead of, say, /dev/sda1.
