At present (1/16/2016) it is currently unclear how much is being backed up and to where such backups are being stored. A previous attempt at setting up a system to handle backups has fallen by the wayside after much effort. It would be wise to get a simple backup script running that pulls down nightly backups to one of the hacktops (for the time being) using something as simple as rsync. This can be as easy as backing up configuration files and databases, or full system backups meant to be usable for restoration.


At the moment this command, wrapped in a script, fed an exclude file, is performing one off backups of key VMs

rsync -azP --exclude-from '/home/ps1user/Backups/exclude-list.txt' root@bob.ad.pumpingstationone.org:/ /home/ps1user/Backup/bob.ad.pumpingstationone.org/
