Enabling archive bit in linux for use with backup exec differencial backups
Posted on 2007-03-19
I have an issue when backing up a linux server. I am using a windows 2000 server pc with backup exec 9.1 installed all patches applied. I am trying to run a differencial backup but it always insists on backing up everything.
I am told this is because i have no archive bit set up on the file system so backup exec does not know when a file was last accessed.
At the moment we run Fedora Core 3 text daemon linux server that holds about 1.8 TB.
Is this something that can be easily fixed or is this going to be a major issue.
My knowledge of Linux is vry limited. I can log on, view files and thats about all so any help given will have to be like a dummies guide for me :o)
