    • Media Backup OMV3(HP microserver Proliant Gen8) 2 Synology DS215j

      Hello everybody,

      I`m looking for an advise or sollution for my aim.

      I have two NAS`s mainly using for as a media dlna. Movies & etc. are on OMV3(HP) and i would like all the media to backup to another NAS which is Synology.
      Synology shall not be on all the time.Only in case of backup.Backup shall be not so often(at least one`s a month or less).

      Now,
      is there a kind(a way or plug-in) of backup that when i press a button for,OMV check`s for a new content on HDD(`s) and the same content sends to Synology?
      So,do not copy`s all the data again and again and again,which may take on the and a few lightyears...
      Both NASes are locally(on the same router).

      TNX!
    • rsync would be perfect for this. Pretty sure synology has rsync but I don't have one.

    • Pretty much the set-up I use for now:

      OMV 3 on HP Microserver Gen8 backs up via rsync every day at 9.00pm to a Synology DS 214. From OMV point of view scheduling with backup once per month is no deal, but telling the Synology to start up once a month only could be harder.

      You'll have to enable rsync on the Synology (which is done by a wizard and easy to do) and then add rsync jobs (push) to your
      needs in OMV. Can be done passwd protected on same network and therefore also doable for beginners (I succeeded, too).

      This will copy resp. sync the complete data once but then only changed / added folders and files. You can have a 1:1 copy of
      your OMV data or (better) keep also files no longer available in OMV. Up to you.

      Wake-on-lan (WOL) could do the job.
      Start the DS215j by WOL from OMV and then shut down after the HDD have been idle for some time.

    • Thanks u all for reply`s !!!

      On Sinology i have done (hopefully) everything what was needed(WOL,rsynk etc.).

      And i tried to set it up on OMV, but sadly did not happend.

      Can someone give me a help on setting OMV?

    • Hello guy`s, i have bumped into the wall wit he next warning :

      Please wait, syncing </srv/dev-disk-by-label-1.42.6-5644/video/> to <admin@MediaBackUp::NetBackup> ...

      rsync: getaddrinfo: MediaBackUp 873: Name or service not known
      rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(128) [sender=3.1.1]


      Note:
      I can not get port 873 ON, on the DS215j(It`s reserved only for system) !
      I have tried on both NAS`s port 22 but no result.

      Any advise?

    • Same here, HP Gen 8 OMV (2.2.14) and Synology DS112+ with Seagate 8 TB Archiv, working for nearly 2 years:

      1.) rsync works, fine,

      better option for me

      2.) setup a backup share on the Synology with user and password.

      3.) Connect this share to OMV HP Gen8 with "Remote Shares" - but map this Remote Share to a local folder which is NOT on your basic OMV file system. Otherwise every error of the Remote Share connection (i.e. Synology offline) causes possible overrun of this file system at time of backup with serious side effects. I use a small area of an auxiliary SSD with its own file system.

      4.) Backup with "Rsnapshot" (which uses itself rsync) gives a versione backup. The history in backup (hourly, dayly,...) can be set up in Rsnapshot. Once set up, ths system backups fully automatically on scheduled time.

      Nevertheless, as HP Gen 8 and Synology are both online at time of backup (connected to the power net with danger of hit by lightning), it is no bad idea in addition to use also "USB-Backup" on an external USB drive. For example once a month manually.

      Eric,

      Does u`r option(2) allows me to keep 2nd Nas(DS115j) OFF from time to time and than (after booting up) to continue with rSync/rSnapshot or it needs for the purpose of syncing to be connected by all the time?

      And what do u mean by bolded/underlined text : auxiliary SSD with its own file system?
