Ralus backup of rsynced data
We some file space for our dept on a campus nas. Since we don't manage the nas, we're unable to install the nas agent for BE, so we're rsyncing the data we want to a server with the ralus agent. The is a snapshot folder on the nas with nightly and weekly snapshots, but we aren't rsyncing that.
We've just set this up and successfully backed up the rsynced data over the weekend. The path to the data is \\server\data\nas-backups. I'm trying to do a test restore, but I see a gigantic number of folders under data. These folders have one of 3 names:
One of the folders named nas-backups has a modified date. When I go into it, there are multiple instances of each folder. One of each has a modified date. You get the idea. It's like a Russian nesting doll, and each level takes at least a minute to open. I am guessing that it has something do the snapshotting on the nas, regardless of the fact that we are excluding the snapshot folder.
Any ideas what I need to do to get this to work properly? I'm thinking about rsyncing one of the full snapshot folders rather than the live data.
