Abstract:
This talk starts with a brief comparison of different disaster recovery technologies. The strengths of rebuilding systems from a custom-burned CD are discussed. Three sets of details are provided: writing a custom CD from Tru64 UNIX, recovering one system from a CD and recovering a family of systems from one master CD. The details for writing a custom CD cover the use of cdrecord, a freeware program, to create a CD in UFS, AdvFS or CDFS formats. The details for recovering a system from a CD include creating a bootable CD which automatically restores file systems archived on the CD. The details for recovering a family of machines introduces several interesting technologies. The languages of Tcl and Expect are overviewed. Also, the interaction of Tru64 UNIX's installation procedure with the installation feature of cloning is explored. In summary, by the end of the talk, the user will be able to create their own custom CD for disaster recovery under Tru64 UNIX.
