I came to fsarchiver by way of partimage not working for my particular situation. (partimage does *not* support the default fs type (ext4) installed by ubuntu 12.04).
Since FS Archiver works a bit differently than partimage, I wanted to see if anyone could offer a quick "best practices" for disaster recovery.
ie., something like:
1.) Note your partition scheme.
** since FS Archiver does not recreate partitions, I would think an admin would have to note the size of the partition if installing a new drive and recovering from fscarchiver... maybe something like:
Code: Select all
fsarchiver probe simple > /mnt/mybackup/my_partitions.txt
(is there a way to record your command used??)
Then the best practice to restore after replacing the disk?
1.) Check the my_partitions.txt file and recreate your partitions with sizes, etc..
2.) restore from backup
Of course, the above is incomplete as I am trying to prompt someone who is more knowledgeable than I to help with it's completion. ;-)
