Question Unix Backed up with Windows NT?

We are running a Windows NT environment and have a stand alone Unix box. Is there software that would allow this Unix machine to be backed up along with our routine Windows NT backups? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Quick and dirty way would be to install Samba (search the forum for details) and map the UNIX box as a drive on your NT server and back it up like that.

otherwise most back-up software vendors have UNIX versions of their product that you can use.

Another option would be to ufsdump the filesystem to a file and gzip and then ftp the file to a NT box to be backed up on tape with the rest of the NT systems.

It could all be part of a regular cronjob.
