When you are finished with a backup and sure that all the data is properly transfered remove it from Cactus2.  Do we really want to immediately delete the data? I'm not sure this is best. [[User:Luiz|Luiz]] 22:33, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

You will need to be on a wired connection for this to work

To backup a persons home folder(s) over the network using scp (as root)

scp -r /home/ tsbackup@192.168.2.101:/var/tsbackup/[date - persons name]

replace [date - persons name] with the appropriate information

To restore do the opposite (as root)

scp -r tsbackup@192.168.2.101:/var/tsbackup/[date-name] /home/ 

If you have reinstalled and the user had accounts other then oem you will still need to recreate those user accounts:

adduser [username]

You might also need to apply proper permissions

find /home/username/ -type f -exec chgrp -r username {} \; 
find /home/username/ -type f -exec chown -r username {} \; 
find /home/username/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find /home/username/ -type d -exec chmod 754 {} \;

or for move private users

find /home/username/ -type f -exec chgrp -r username {} \; 
find /home/username/ -type f -exec chown -r username {} \;  
find ./ -type f -exec chmod 640 {} \;
find ./ -type d -exec chmod 750 {} \;

When you are finished with a backup and sure that all the data is properly transfered remove it from Cactus2. Do we really want to immediately delete the data? I'm not sure this is best. Luiz 22:33, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

rm -r /var/tsbackup/[date-name]
