Back up solution in Solaris 10 environment

Hi Friends,

Good day!

This is my first post in this forum Smilie

In my company we have a requirement for back up application specific files[.XML,.properties etc] and directories .We have around 40+ application which needs to be backed up [In Local harddisk/tape/storage].All these applications are running on Solaris 10 enviornment.

Is there any standard procedure [Back up tool or Shell scripting] for back up. Also , how I can control all these back up process in a centralised way.The biggest challenge I am facing is monitoring of these back up jobs[Weekly], like the back up process for all these applications were suceess or not.

Please share your thoughts on this.
I would like to have a suggestion for industry standard tool[Paid or Open source].

Thanks & Regards
Abilash KP

If you are looking for an OpenSource solution, then you can use Amanda:
It is available from OpenCSW: or you can build it from source.

If you are considering commercial products, then Symantec NetBackup and EMC Networker are good solutions.

A good start would be google with your keywords "unix/solaris backup software".

As far as I remember from my admin times, we used NetBackup.

What File system are you using? ufs? zfs?

if zfs there are procedures on Oracle's website to send a zfs snapshot to file.
