    Taking backup or clone remote system


    Halo, I have search online for taking backup or clone hard disk of my systems which are located remote place of my city. Yet i did not find any successful manner to do it. Acronis or clonzilla clone hdd which are physically available. But I would like to to backup or clone of entire centos mail server/web server of my client from single location. I tried dd but that fails too. Any one have any better idea for that?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Did you try rsync? As for disc cloning remotely, I assume you can ssh to the remote system? If so, then you can start netcat (nc) on your local system listening for incoming connections on some port, and pipe the output to dd locally to the target image file or disc. Login to the remote system, and then start dd, piping its output to netcat which will connect to the listening instance on your local machine over the network. I haven't tried that, but it should work.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I can ssh remote system. I tried dd but when I restore data nothing worked. Is there any issue with linux version? I mean if I restore backup of 5.3 to 5.8, would there be any problem?
