Server Backup observations RRS feed

  • General discussion


    Looks good and seems to be working so far, only another 400GB to go....

    I am using an internal drive  as the server backup drive.


    What I would have liked to see and use, would be the ability to select ALL (if there were more then one backup drive) and have the backup automatically use the space available concurently, or consecutively. As it is, one has to manually setup which drives to use, to make certain that there is enough space available.


    Another point is that if you are using Lights Out, and have the server set to hibernate/sleep, the backup stops as the server does so.. Maybe Lights Out needs updating to take into consideration a server backup is occuring and not hibernate/sleep until it has been completed.


    Anyone else have thoughts on this?
