Dear All IBMer's,
I would like to know if anyone out there has a solution to my problem. I need to backup Linux + a few running applications to an image. After creating an image would like to restore it through network boot. This is to be done on the IBM Power Systems platform (PowerPC). Please let me know if there are any open source software that could help complete this task. Appreciated!

Re: Linux backup software and restore via network boot2010-07-19T17:21:50Z in response to SystemAdminThis forum is mainly for System x questions. You might have better luck on the Linux for Power Architecture forum. You might also get inspiration from some of the standalone rescue tools, such as the System Rescue CD. These tend to have a collection of open source tools that you could use along with settign up a network boot environment to run them in.
When you say "running applications", you'll either need to stop them temporarily, or figure out how to checkpoint to some state so that your backup is usable.
