Koji has provided a 2TB USB3 external hard drive that will get daily backups of
chiara:/home/cds, the idea being that if the internal HD at /dev/sdb1 fails, we can physically open the external up, and swap the hard drive into chiara.
We're running an rsync job on it right now, which should be done in a few hours. (USB3 is fast!)
I've also written a backup script at
scripts/backup/rsync_chiara.backup which keeps its books in
I'm adding a entry to the root crontab on chiara to execute the script every day at 7am.
