Backup, Restore, and Disaster Recovery on a System With Zones Installed
Penny Cotten, November 2005
Backup, restore, and disaster recovery are critical elements of data management. When you use zones, the requirements of your organization will dictate the solution you choose to back up your system running the Solaris Operating System (OS).
Backing up file systems means copying file systems to removable media, such as tape, to safeguard against loss, damage, or corruption. Restoring file systems means copying current backup files from removable media to a working directory.
This document discusses various methods for backing up zone configurations and data on your system, and provides recommendations on the different methodologies that can be used.
