Just a short note on something I tested in my lab.


Barracuda has a backup appliance that uses a rather small agent on Linux. So I thought why not give a go and see what happens if you install the agent on a R80.10 SmartCenter.


Well it actually works like charm.


It may break at some point or TAC will be upset if I open a ticket and they spot the critter. But I can run a local backup daily and then get a full backup of my SmartCenter to the Backup Appliance.


I can browse for all the backup sets I want to:


Wether or not a backup agent will actually work on a SmartCenter propably depends a bit on the features. But the smaller and selfcontained the agent is the better your chances are.
