Creating a second HDA to act as a "Backup server"

Postby bertie40 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 5:15 am

Hi Guys.
Paranoid as I am, I have created a second HDA, on another machine, to act as a backup for my Main HDA server.

I was hoping the second machine would be labelled HDB (or something). How can I get both machines to talk to each other.

Are there any problems about having Two HDA's on the same network, which I am unaware of ?
Any Steps I need to take ?

Cheers and best regards.

I'm pretty sure there's a wiki article about this but until I find that link..

You'll need to make a second HDA profile within your amahi login on the website.
Setup and install as instructed..

- make sure the backup HDA has the DHCP server OFF permanently
http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Turning_off_DHCP

- I believe (not 100% sure) you will also need to permanently disable: openVPN and DLNA servers

- also, since it's purely a backup server, give it more strict firewall rules to keep outside access minimal.
You might even wanna disable internet access on the machine unless you're doing updates to software in Fedora/Amahi.

On a side note, couldn't you just make every share in your current HDA duplicated so that you have 2 copies of everything on your HDA right now??
