    Is there a way to do a complete backup to a network drive? That way if you loose a HD you don't have to reprogram everything. Please take in mind that not all of us are Linux savy (but getting there). Thanks

    I would like to know this one as well. Currently I am doing a backup and pushing it to our ftp site in binary mode. The Binary mode was important because if it is not in binary mode it corrupted the file. I've been told that the backup would entail the use of Samba and a cron job.

    Any thoughts?

    Try using rsync, you can find a Windows version to recive the files directly from your *

    If you made a rsync backup of a whole Elastix server hard drive to a network drive, would it work if you restored it in a clean Elastix installation?

    No, you have to use elastix backup feature to save the configs, you cannot backup/restore the image of a working server, else, you can use Acronis Trueimage (about $60) to have a complete image of the server, in ordder to restore it working.
