I have a (Virtualized) Linux server which I'd like to backup regularly. The rest of our environment is Microsoft and our backup solution (ArchiveIQ) runs only on Windows - there are no Linux clients.
My solution is to backup the pertinent data to a Windows share which will, in turn, be caught up in the nightly ArchiveIQ backup schedule. Where I need advice is how to go about doing this.
One recommendation was to create an NFS share on a Windows machine and then mount that on the Linux machine. I have very little experience with NFS and am having trouble mounting the share onto the directory.
What I do have experience with is Samba. Would there be any pitfalls of blowing away the NFS share and recreating it as a Windows share and then just mounting with CIFS?
