Back Dat NAS Up

Things I have learned this weekend:

  • mysqldump is an important part of your backup workflow, but be sure to flush.
  • CRON WILLS IT, but only if you incant the ancient prayer with “-e“.
  • NFS root_squash is not a vegetable, but it can turn a capable man into one.
  • ZFS listens to xattr and ACL, but you probably haven’t heard of it.
  • cp can make hard links automatically, but don’t tell Chris Hansen.
  • backintime is the flux capacitor on the rsync DeLorean, but without the Libyan terrorists.
