I have a CentOS server. What is the best way to backup/image this thing in case of disaster (fire/flood/etc) I know I could use a backup prog. - time consuming. Say the server was stolen. The only way an image would work is if I have a new setup w/ the exact HDDs and very similar chipsets/components. A regular backup means that I could use a different HDD config. but still the other hardware must be similar, and i'm forced to reinstall the OS (longer than imaging). Any suggestions? Thanks, Loy.

I like sbackup a lot, scheduled backups are a breeze and they just put them in a tarball file. Why do you want an image file over just a backup to either a server or a cdrw?Bodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
