[rear-users] request for help to configure - backing up the entire system running Linux

Hello Ivan,

  Thanks for your quick response and I find it useful.  I could not find the documentation that deals with all the available syntax/variables that I can use for /etc/rear/local.conf.  Have some more questions:

(1)     For a full system backup, what is the syntax that I should use (want to include the directories /boot, /etc, /var, /home, /opt, /lib /lib64, /usr.  The point here is I don't want to use a DVD image to recover the system by installing the OS.

(2)    What is the syntax for excluding directoris/files.

(3)    How does the BACKUP_URL and OUTPUT_URL differ (again pardon me since I don't have complete documentation that I can refer to).

  I am trying to configure the ReaR.  My goal is to configure the Rear to backup the entire system running LinuxOS.  So I would like to backup and recover the "/", "/boot" directories to ISO output.  I would like to first place the iso locally.  At present I could get the ISO output placed locally.  However, my ISO output is about 30-40MB.  So I would like to request your help to configure the /etc/rear/local.conf with the an example of variables to be used in the local.conf for backing  up the entire system.  The "/" directory is about 3.0GB.  Thanks.
