We are using an EVMS-controlled NSS volume for our data. I've seen plenty
of references to expensive backup solutions in this forum, but wondered
what the pitfalls were in using rsync to do a backup of our data volume
onto a spare machine running, say, SuSE Linux Desktop 10. This would be
preferable as an off-site backup, rather than using (say) a DLT drive.

Any thoughts/guidance greatly appreciated.
