    Backup: Mirroring on network???


    We have a small park of six computers with several of these used to backup our working server files (an unused W2000 with shared folders). Keeping these backup up to date is troublesome. So my question is

    Can a hardisk be mirrored (like RAID) accross two or more network locations???
    eg. open/save files from the server/ saved files are automatically copied onto the backup HD on second backup server.

    It appears this is not easily implemented on Windows can it be done with linux???

    There are a few ways to perform this on Linux.

    Was of the simlest is to use rsync. One of the more advanced is to use drbd.
