View Full Version : Can Amanda do this?

January 13th, 2011, 01:50 AM
Hi all
This is my scenario: i have a Synology DS411+ storage in my home, with 4.5TB available storage space. I have a fixed IP address at home.
In the office, i have a Win2003 Server running SQL Server and serves as a File Server.
I would like to backup the office server to my storage at home, then have it do incremental backups to it. I would also like, if possible, to keep 4 or 5 different backup sets ( or maybe a different backup set for each day of the week ).

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Edit: forgot to mention, that Synology runs FTP server, and in fact runs Linux within it

It is possible to do provided you have secure network between home and office (VPN?)
or you can set up ssh between the two locations (use amanda ssh authentication)
