Good afternoon folks,
I've been charged with finding and implementing a network backup solution
that will replace our current commercial backup solution. Even though the
network is Windows based I was hoping that I could implement Bacula on a
Linux server and install the Bacula client on all the Windows servers that
have to be backed up.
A couple of questions I have are,
1. Is it possible to implement a GUI from a remote client (e.g. Bacula is
installed on a Ubuntu server and the Client can connect and run a Bacula GUI
2. Bacula provides Windows binaries, if I install them on the Windows
clients are they compatible with the Bacula server on Linux?
3. Is Bacula the best option for backing up and restoring 13 Windows
If anyone on the list has any experience with this type of set up I'd
appreciate any advice on setting this up or any pitfalls to avoid.
