Time machine is a great piece of backup software that comes with Macs. How Time Machine works is that it backs up based on a policy until there is no space left on the destination. When space is depleted, Time Machine deletes the oldest backups. While the process makes sense, it does raise the question of how to backup multiple Macs to the same Synology device. I will cover the process in this post.
Now that you have a backup of your encrypted folder it is important that you test and understand the process of backup and restore. Read on to learn more!
Now that you have an encrypted folder, you may be wondering how to back it up. I will cover the steps in this post.
In Log Insight 2.0 a clustering feature was introduced. This feature made it possible to go above the configuration maximums of a single node, however scale is not the only reason to consider when architecting a Log Insight solution and considering clustering. In this post, I would like to discuss other benefits to leveraging a cluster.
I just concluded a three part series on how to backup and restore Log Insight. I just realized that I missed how to backup and restore the SSL certificate on the Log Insight virtual appliance. I will address this oversight in this post and then update the previous posts.
As you know, Log Insight is primarily used through its HTML5 interface. By default, Log Insight ships with a unique SSL certificate per appliance. The Administration section of the Log Insight UI allows a user to upload a PEM certificate to use in place of the self-signed certificate. In this post, I would like to discuss operations you may desire to perform in regards to SSL in Log Insight as well as share a script on how to properly manage all the available options.
In my first post about Log Insight 2.5 backup and recovery, I talked about deployment types, backup considerations and architecture of the different Log Insight components. With that knowledge, I would like to continue by discussing how to back up the different components of Log Insight 2.5.
A question that comes up from time-to-time is how do you backup and restore Log Insight? I would like to cover backup and recovery over the next three posts.
