I am using Acronis True Image to make incremental backups of my primary 80GB PC Drive through Naslite-2 on a remote Linux system. The distro. is Ubuntu 7.04 which is a freely downloadable Linux O/S. It took quite a while, as a Linux novice, to get it all working, so here is my recipe for anyone else who might be interested.

To Setup a Remote Storage File on a Linux PC on the Naslite network:

On your Linux storage medium you will have a non-boot ext3 partition labelled “Linux”. Run sudo fdisk –l to find its name, for example hda5, or hdb3 etc

On the Linux, make your new directory “storage” or whatever:-

sudo mkdir /storage

Edit the fstab file so that “storage” can be mounted on Boot:-

sudo nano /etc/fstab

Add final line /dev/hdb3 /storage ext3 defaults 0 0
substituting “hdb3” with your partition name

Control X, Y, <enter> to save and exit.

Run: mount –a to have Linux store changes.

In order to allow NL access, change ownership of files:

sudo chown -R 98:98 /storage

Change permissions:

sudo chmod –R 777 /storage

In “Places / computer” locate the new “storage” folder and right-click, selecting “sharing”. Enter NFS and IP address of Naslite Server (Network or Name). e.g.

Reboot the Linux and proceed with the Remotely-Hosted Storage procedures in the Naslite Installation and Administration Guide, Save and Reboot Naslite and the Linux volume should be visible as a new Storage Disk.
