BTW: deleting the backups share did not delete the /var/hda/files/backups directory and I had to do it by hand. reboo...

Re: Problem with new install

All went well, I reinstalled, mounted the landing zone disk at /var/hda/files (saving are restoring all that was...

Re: Multiple installs and server names

In the end I had to change the domain name, which means a reinstall anyway, so I just did it over.

The process of deleting an old server and adding a new one worked very well.

Re: How do I reduce redundancy and eliminate extra file copi

What was the outcome? I am interested because I have not determined the number of copies I want to keep of each kind of file.

Re: Problem with new install

I try to avoid extra complexity most of the time :D. However, in this case I wanted the landing zone to be on a separate partition and not on the root disk. I did this by mounting the drive to .../files/landingZone. It does occur to me that I could mount the drive directly to /var/hda/files. (Of cou...
