Mondo question

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I've got a Mondo question. I've created a bash file under '/usr/local/sbin' called 'mondo.complete', which backs up my entire system using mondoarchive when I run it. Here it is:





echo "Mondoing Complete System"


mount /dev/hdb5 /archive/backups


mondoarchive -OV -p complete.backup -i -s 80g -I / -E /archive/backups -N -d /archive/backups/mondo/complete -9 -F -G -S /archive/backups/mondo/scratch -T /archive/backups/mondo/temp


umount /dev/hdb5



My question is this: I want the prefix ( -p complete.backup) to recognise the date of when it's created. I.e., when I run this command it would save the iso as /archive/backups/mondo/complete/complete_19-1-08_1.iso

Currently when I run this command it overwrites the current iso, or I need to edit this bash script to put the correct date in (tedious). Anyone got any hints on this? Have found setting the diff option is the same problem. Thanks!

Hey folks, just a bump. Anyone got any guesses? If you're not familiar with how Mondo works, how would I do the same thing from the commandline? Any simple commands to add date/time etc to a file when it's created? Thanks.
