Backing us SUSE 9.0 Enterprise

What is the best backup option for a SuSE Enterprise 9.0 Server that will be a file server using SAMBA?
Is there a good freeware option?
1 Solution
it will depend on what you are trying to backup and what you want to back it up to.

if you are just going to backup simple files - I'd just use tar to make an archive of the files, and export to either tape, or another physical server that gets backed up on a tape.

There is also amanda http://www.amanda.org/  that is included with most linux distros.

For commercial solutions, veritas backup exec's linux agent works well.
