    Red Hat Enterprise AS Backup


    I want to back up my Red Hat Enterprise AS to DVDR CDR or tape. I will decide that later. I want to backup the whole OS itself. I tried to find a package to do this with, but I am probably looking for the wrong things. Can anyone point me in the direction of a website/program/or anywhere in RH itself that will let me do this and have good instructions on how to?

    Thanx in advance

    I've just had a look around for something todo this and cannot find anything. Is there an alternative way to approach this problem? eg, only backing up the files you actually need?

    Or if this is to roll out the same image/setup to lots of servers, you may want something like http://www.feyrer.de/g4u/

    I should have said I wanted to ghost my linux OS, probably would have made things much easier. I will read into your link and see if it's what I can use. Anyone else know of anything else I can use as well?

    have you tried partimage? you can ghost a linux os using that...
    i'm looking for something to do the same and tried it and it works.
    Fixing Unix is better than working with Windows.
