I have been using VM Pro for as long as I remember it being here??? I have tried others interim and have always come back to this software as I find it much more useful and free to do what you want. I currently have 3 licenses on 3 different machines and want to start from scratch. I want to end up with a main server and a second server that can be used as a “raid” type in case the other fails. Is this possible?
When I install on each server what host name do I give each if they are to be duplicates?
How do I IP address each machine?
These probably sound like newbie questions but I have always just installed and go! Ive never created a backup server plan.
Well, Cloudmin Pro does offer failover between two systems monitored by Cloudmin.
However, the simplest (and cheapest) possible way to setup redundancy is to have a second host where you copy your backups to, and then import them into Virtualmin via cron (using the virtualmin command line tools).
If you did that once a day, you’d have a server with data no older than 24 hours, which would be able to take over for your main server.
I do also have a license for cloudmin local… and I use it between all 3 machines. Im not sure why, just cuz it was new and I wanted to see what it would do… so in that case scenario how would I setup each machine using cloudmin to replicate. Thanks so much for your help Eric!!
