After reading the previous example, it should not be a problem for you to understand how to configure multiple source directories (see example 2) and how to configure cross linking between to backup (see examples 3 and 4). I now assume, that you generate a configuration file with
# storeBackup.pl -g stbu.conf
lateLinks = yes lateCompress = yes doNotDelete = yes
If you have a high bandwidth line, there is no need to change lateCompress from no to yes. Because of doNotDelete = yes you will not have to wait for the deletion of old backups.
storeBackupUpdateBackup.pl -b <backupDirDir> \ -l /tmp/stbuUpdate.logThis will generate the missing hard links (and others).
storeBackupDel.pl -f <cf1> -b <backupDirDir> \ --unset doNotDelete
This will overwrite (unset) also the doNotDelete flag in the
You have to set backupDir in the command above to the same location you specified in the configuration file of storeBackup.pl. If it is the same path on the client and on the server, you do not have to overwrite it (you do not have to specify it on the command line of storeBackupUpdateBackup.pl). You can read more about configuration files and command line options in section 7.1.
You can also make the very first backup with the lateLinks option set. Naturally, you have to run storeBackupUpdateBackup.pl to get a complete backup.
Detailed explanations about option lateLinks are available in Using option lateLinks.
