Alternate Data Seeding Option
I have read both of the following, which reference the same method for seeding data onto an UrBackup server.
I’m attempting to do this remotely for a client, so the USB sneakernet option is not really available, although I could handle it another, inconvenient way if absolutely necessary.
Thus, I am asking if the following is also a viable method.
Here’s the overview:
– OS: Windows 2016 & 2012-R2 clients / Windows 2016 Server
– Version: Latest 2.4.x client and server
– Site A (Far Site #1)
– Site B (Far Site #2)
– Site C (Near Site)
---- OLDBACKUPSVR (CLIENT1 already successfully backs up files to this server)
---- NEWBACKUPSVR (CLIENT2 and CLIENT3 already successfully backup files to this server)
Make CLIENT1 also backup to NEWBACKUPSVR, but seed it first
Since I already have a valid backup folder for CLIENT1 on OLDBACKUPSVR, and the two backup servers are on the same network already, can I just copy the CLIENT1 folder that already exists on the OLDBACKUPSVR and immediately start backing up CLIENT1 to NEWBACKUPSVR?
Thanks for your assistance
