rsnapshot

I‘m using rsnapshot filesystem snapshot utility to make incremental snapshots of local and remote filesystems for 10 production servers running on RHEL 5.x system. The rsnapshot commands makes extensive use of hard links,

so if the file doesn’t change, the next snapshot is simply a hard link to the exact same file. How do I use the rsync command to copy my the entire snapshot directory /raid6/rsnapshot (around 4TB) to a remote server?

I‘ve created the backup server using this tutorial under Redhat and Debian Linux systems. How do I restore files (such as /var/www/html) with rsnapshot backup tool? How do I restore MySQL database dumps with rsnapshot under UNIX or Linux operating systems?

I’ve HP RAID 6 server running RHEL 5.x. I’d like to act this box as a backup server for my other Red Hat DNS and Web server. The server must keep backup in hourly, daily and monthly format. How do I configure my Red Hat / CentOS Linux server as remote backup or snapshot server?

I‘d like to configure my Debian box to backup two remote servers using rsnapshot software. It should make incremental snapshots of local and remote filesystems for any number of machines on 2nd hard disk located at /disk1 ( /dev/sdb2).
