backup space in LMS Soft Apliance

LMS 4.2 Soft Apliance has default:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/mapper/smosvg-optvol

                      105G  4.8G   95G   5% /opt

/dev/mapper/smosvg-varvol

                       53G  268M   50G   1% /var

Where to create Backup folder? Under /opt or /var ?

/var seems more logical to me, but you can choose where ever is most diskspace available.

I also advise to run a cronjob the tar gzip your backup and push it of to a storage, iow not on the appliance.

Basically keep perhaps the last 2 or 3 backups on the appliance.

Cheers,

Michel

DB's.  Logs get rotated. I always configure that to go for a rotate weekly.

ump 'performance' database grows quite big .

I've made a batchfile to do ftp and another one that uses something called robocopy.  I need to see if I still have these.

But it is not rocket sience

Sometimes it stays on the customer machine without a copy on my pc  :-|

Thank you Michael.

Hm, /var seems more logical to me too, but more diskspace is available under /opt (95GB vs 50GB). What about long-term basis? Db is under /opt, logs under /var etc. What will grow faster?

Do you have some cronjob backup script to share with us? Firther more, is it ok to place it under shell, regarding Cisco support & warranty?
