A few questions first:
What do you mean by pool mechanism?
Are you talking about array pool level (hardware snapshots)?
I think you might be saying that you prefer a physical backup to a logical backup.
If so, and you are using ZFS storage pools, you might consider zpool split.
I use mirro between hd1 and hd2...
yes i meant zfs pool....i want to have a logical backup other than the snapshot mecanism...and something that i can restore in a simple way, maybe from another disk..
Sounds like you have one mirrored ZFS pool of 2 disks, probably the root pool.
Then, yes, creating a Flash archive of your root pool that you could store on an
external disk would be a good backup along with more frequent snapshots.
Thanks Cindy, but if i create a root pool image with flarcreate, do i back up also others directories, likes /app, all my software and biaries, all my installed software, network configurations, users?
Do you have any additional disks that can be attached to this system for backup purposes?
Of course, USB external drive....
