Installing and Configuring the NS Backup:
After clicking on Add, then it says Apply Changes and click on it.
When it is downloaded and installed Backup now it’s time to enable it.
To enable there is many forms to enable it. For my test I click on Enabled at 14:30 and apply the backup to a USB disk with Full and Never for deleted backup. But you make anytime for backup for Windows Share or NFS share. Also Notification by default only with an error but I changed to mine Always to my custom email address.
When at the appropriate time it will backup up the configuration and data.
To Restore from a Disaster Recover:
- Install the new machine with the same host name as the old one
- Configure a data backup, so the system can retrieve saved data and configuration
- If the old machine was the network gateway, remember to re-install firewall module
Note: Restoring a File Sharing is not working. If you have a File Share(s) I would do a virtual NS and backup the virtual.
You can restore the configuration from the NS website or by using a ssh to server. I usually restore from a ssh.
You can do the configuration restore by doing this command:
If the configuration seemed correct you can do the data restore by doing this command
