The Revamped Life Preserver

Kris Moore has an article in the October issue of BSD Magazine which describes how the new PC-BSD 9.2 utilities are making it easier to take advantage of ZFS features on PC-BSD. The redesigned Life Preserver makes it easy to manage ZFS snapshots and to replicate them to another system or removable disk. The article is on pages 1618 and the issue is available for free download.

    Too bad we can’t use it anymore to replicate the backup to a simple server with SSH, the remote server needs ZFS now.

    As far as I know, this may be possible to save snapshots dump file to a remote server in a future version ?

    the link “free download” goes to a site that requires you to give them your email, then get it from your email.

    that is just wrong@stalkers.com.

      I don’t disagree :-) However, that is how BSD Mag chooses to do it.
