Bacula: backups that don't suck

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 192.168.200.50] on April 25, 2008 02:10 AM
Bacula kicks ass. Seriously. You can take quite a wide variety of exceptionally expensive software that you might intend to buy like Netbackup, and drop it straight into the bin for Bacula.

The only limiting thing with Bacula I find, in comparison with Amanda, is the backup schedules. It's fine if you want to do a full backup once a month, but putting in logic to back do a full back up once every two or three months requires a lot of convoluted scripting I'm not keen on. Anybody have any tips on getting more out of Bacula schedules?
