I am configuring a PE2500 (RH7.2 preinstalled, two discs as raid1) and the archives
of this list have been a great source of information. Thanks to all.
Is it possible to "abuse" the mirror and produce a backup on a third harddrive, which
in case of some failure (say "rm -rf /") may be used to restore the system? Along the
A and B contain installed system
insert C - rebuild A=>C
A and C are deleted (duh!)
pull A and C
insert A - rebuild B=>A (?)
If it's a stupid idea, tell me so - I'm new to this stuff :-)
Another thing, how do I verify multiple tape cpio archives?
