I'm running a IRC/web server on ubuntu 9.04 on slightly old hardware, and well, i'm not sure if anything will break. While i periodically shutdown the box and back it up with clonezilla, i'm looking for a way to backup a running system.
I've tried mondo (which didn't work for me, and there's no updated docs on the ubuntu wiki), so i'm wondering what other options i have?
Ideally i'd want something fire and forget- and obviously command line or curses based, and will backup a running server without the need for shutdown, to either an NFS,Samba share or USB, though i wouldn't mind needing a dedicated box to backup to since i could run that on a VM. Bare metal restore would be a bonus.
