TCB::Backup is the backup package used to back up all file systems for the TCB Group. It generally consists of scripts to run...

  1. ...nightly ufsdump backups to disk using cron,
  2. ...monthly ufsdump backups to tape by hand, and
  3. ...twice-annual GNU tar backups to tape for archival purposes.

Full documentation is provided within the source code.


This package currently only works under Solaris, using ufs file systems. You will also need adequate disk and tape space to do all of your backups, but this is beyond the scope of a 'prereqs' section.
