We use amanda to backup machines to the network on Mon-Thurs evening. To speed the process of getting everyone backed up, you can set yourself up for backup & send me the information.

Setup Instructions

If you have a dynamic IP address, you should use SMB (Windows file sharing). If you have a static IP address, you should use the cygwin or native client, depending on your OS.


Simply create a new user (WITH A PASSWORD!!!) which has Administrative priviliedges. Share the folders you want backed up & allow only this new user to access these shares over the network. Send me the username, share name(s), and password.

Non-AMANDA Backups

MS Backup or other programs will usually let you choose to backup to a single file, which you can store on a machine which is already backed up (e.g. put it on the FTP/SFTP/SMB server).
