Hello

regarding to the documentation of zrm theres a comment that lvm snaps can only be done locally on the mysql server which has to be backuped. is there any way to transfer those snaps to the zrm server (perhaps some kind of ugly hack ;) ) ? or do i have to script something by my self?

thanks

You referring to "backup-type=quick" - quick backups. This mode treats snapshots as backups.

You can set backup-type=regular to do snapshot backups and copy the data to ZRM server.

or

You can do backup-type=quick and use mysql-zrm-manage-backup (http://mysqlbackup.zmanda.com/index.php/Mysql-zrm-manage-backup) to convert the backup to regular backup.
