Solaris X86 9 USB Backup Question
Posted on 2009-04-14
I have an older Sun Solaris X86 (9/04) server on an HP ML370 G3 that was formally being backed up via a SCSI tape drive. The tape drive has died so I am looking into replacing my nightly backups with a USB flash.
This HP server does not have USB ports currently, so my questions are:
1. Can nightly, unattended archival backups be done under Solaris using a USB flash drive to replace a tape drive?
2. If so, can anyone recommend a PCI-X USB card that work under Solaris 9 X86?
3. What type of mounting/unmounting will be required to copy to the USB device and can this be done live/unattended?
