I am using a Rockstor Server for my important data.
I have setup an old (2nd) PC as a “share replication” for Backup.
I have paired the two machines and replication works.
I only found a way to define a fixed time for replication; I would like to start replication on my own (preferrably from the command line via some bash script).
is there a way to start the replication task from the command line instead of a fixed time?
Is there any way (on both sides) to check whether a replication task is running?
For the replication-Slave, when replication is finished I want to shutdown the machine. I want NOT to waste energy to continously run this machine. In addition, the data is “more save” while the machine is switched off.
Same for the replication-Master: if it is not in use for some time, it puts itself into sleep; however I want to delay this while a replication task is running.
Any idea, how I can do this?
Is there any better way to do backups?
