This is a Zentyal feature that I find helpful. I keep a spare gateway running that is a clone of my primary gateway, as a backup in case the main machine goes down. To make the 2nd machine a clone of the first, I backup the primary machine and restore to the second. In NS, that means moving the USB backup drive from one machine to another. It would be easier if I could just download a config file and then upload it as a restore file to the machine I want to clone. Also, being able to download a config file gives me some extra protection in case my backup drive dies.
The backup-config file is created and left on the filesystem now. You could try do scp it to the spare machine with a cron job.
For backup-data you could setup every policy you prefer (I use rsync).
That’s today. For a future version, we’d like to receive suggestions.
Good to know. Thanks.
The backup file is:
IMHO that could be done like the openvpn module, a simple link to download the configuration file by https
Edit : but in order to restore we could’nt import yet because nethgui doesn’t have an import widget except if a trick can be done ???
