Thread: Destination backup on remote server

    Question Destination backup on remote server

    Hi all,

    Based on the backup of remote mysql server [URL="http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/Backup_of_Remote_Servers"]page[/URL], I wonder if it is possible to store the backup (taken from the remote mysql server) on the mysql server and also or not on the ZRM server.

    So I execute a backup job from the ZRM server but it will save/store the backup on the mysql server. This without first backup it to ZRM and transfer it back to the mysql server (network overload then).

    I don't now if it is supported or can be done?
    The only possible solution i can think about is change the destination path in the config file to the path on the mysql server like (\\ip adress\folder)

    Best Regards

    You can use quick snapshots if you are using LVM/ZFS snapshot backup.
    Solution that you have suggested will also work. Please note that storing backups in the
    MySQL server is not recommended.
