I have Novell Netware File server. Which is mounted
as /mnt/novell on one of my Linux m/c.
I want to take backup of Novell Server to my Linux
m/c. I need everyday backup of Novell server to be
taken on Linux m/c. I don't want full backup every
day but I need an incremental backup. I do not want to
delete any old directory or files.
I have taken script from rsync examples, and made
changes. . But it doesn`t work can someone help me.
#directory to backup (source)
/mnt/novell # novell server mounted everyday just
# # for backup purpose
#directory on which backup back to be
#sub-directory date wise for everyday's incremental
OPTS="--backup --backup-dir=/home/bipin/$BACKUPDIR -a"
rsync $OPTS $BDIR $BSERVER/current
above command creates directory current but doesnot
create any sub-directory backup-dir (date wise where
only latest updated or newly created files get
backedup). Can I get some guidance.
Thanking you in advance.
