is anyone here who knows if its possible to create a ISO-Image from a running server to backup all datas on it? I'm planning to create a backup tool that creates a ISO Image from the whole server and backup it to dropbox.

Thanks in advance, J. Doe ;)

  • Problem with any backup of a running server is data consistency. If the system is still running, applications will have data in cache which is not backed up by any filesystem backup applications. You might want to look into existing tooling (offtopic on SuperUser) instead of creating something new. – mtak Aug 24 '17 at 8:32
  • What i plan to do is to realize the backup process. Its not necessary for me to develop a tool by myself. – J. Doe Aug 24 '17 at 10:35
