backup files from solaris to windows
Posted on 2004-03-23
I realize this is fairly simple, but I am fairly new to Unix/Linux and need a simple solution to the following. I need to be able to copy files from a Solaris 8 machine to a windows 2000 Server (specifically the home directory on Solaris). I have configured Samba on Solaris and am able to copy some files, but get a variety of errors on other files (file may be in use/ insufficient permissions etc.). Instead of wasting time on this, I need a simple way to routinely make a backup copy of the home directory on Solaris to a windows 2000 machine (sam lan, etc.) I actually have a windows folder successfully mounted on the Solaris server and now just need the command to backup this folder. I would like to do something similar on Linux as well. Any suggestions?
