bash# mondoarchive -E /mnt/dos /mnt/cdrom -9 -Oc 2 -d 0,0,0
Would create backup CD to a CD-R disc at the highest compression level, writing at speed 2 and ignoring the /mnt/dos and /mnt/cdrom directories.
To see a detailed list of switches and their meaning, see the HTML man page on the website or type 'man mondoarchive' at the console.
bash# mondoarchive -Oc 2 -g
Replace '2' in '-Oc2' with the writer's speed. If mondoarchive cannot find your CD-R then please add '-d 0,0,0' (or whatever your CD writer's SCSI node is; usually, it is 0,0,0) to the call.
Please insert the first disk in the writer while the PC is chugging away. If Mondo needs additional CD-R(W) then it will ask for them.
bash# mondoarchive -Ow 2 -g
Replace '2' in '-Ow2' with the writer's speed.
bash# mondoarchive -Ot -d /dev/st0 -g
With previous versions of Mondo, you needed to specify the size of the tape. As of v1.51, that is no longer necessary.
bash# mondoarchive -k FAILSAFE -Ow 2 -d 0,0,0
Due to slight policy differences in the Debian distribution approach, the '-k FAILSAFE' option is typically needed with Debian.
bash# mount 192.168.1.3:/home/nfs -t nfs /mnt/nfs
The resultant ISO's can be burned to CD's if you want (which isn't a good idea unless you're a Mondo expert because they'll try to restore over a network by default, which is silly cos the archives are on the CD's). Or, you can boot from the Mindi floppies (or mindi.iso) and hit ENTER a few times to restore.
