Everyone,

I am looking to use an offsite backup solution for my KMS store. However it requires that I back up the store itself. I know I need to stop the mail server before the backup and am looking to do it with a cron job. However I am not really sure how to go about executing the cron job. My server is running on Mac OS 10.4 Server. Any help with how to actually set up the script to start/stop my KMS server would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I can't help you with your cron question, but I'm not sure you need it. I don't back up off site, but I do backup to tape. The easiest way to do this is to let KMS backup to disk first, then backup the compressed backup files. This way, you don't have to take the server down during your backup window. Also, the compressed backup files KMS makes will be much more efficient to copy over the network (assuming that's how you're backing up off site) than the individual store files.

Elias,

Thanks for the quick reply. I am currently doing that. I let KMS backup to a HD then back up that HD to tape. The problem with doing this for the offsite system is the way that system backs stuff up. The system backups up only changes to a document after an initial seed of the data. The problem with just using the KMS backup is it creates a brand new file every night with a unique name. I would be trying to transfer a new file offsite every night. This is why I am trying to get to stop the server and back up the server itself so I only have to transfer the changed files.
