Cluster Backup Both Nodes to Each other

May 9, 2019
Good day,

I have a cluster with 2 Nodes,

I would like to know if it is possible (and if so please guide me in the direction) to backup my 2 nodes to each others' storage. I.e I want to Backup Node 1 on Node 1 Storage and Node 2 storage and vice versa.

If that is not an option then I will rsync the 2 backup locations to a seperate mount point on each server so that Node 1 has a fodler with both nodes backups and vice versa.

Please let me know and thank you in advance.
general this can be achieved with ZFS replica.
In a cluster, you can do this on the GUI.

The precondition is ZFS as storage.

you need a partition

I am uanble to do a new partition at this time.

For now I do a cp /var/lib/vz/dump/ /backup/ and rsync that folder between the servers.
