    In a separate thread on security, Dicko mentioned the importance of backups, and for that matter, bare-metal (restore from nothing) backups.

    This can be accomplished using an awesome open-source tool, MondoRescue. Unfortunately, the "yum" install of MondoRescue did not work for me; therefore, I had to build from RPM's.

    Now, in the past, from what I understand, this was a different process. In fact, there are several tutorials on the Trixbox site on this very topic, which are out-of-date. This command-list is valid, as of 2010.

    Without further ado, this is the set of commands I eventually came up with ... To get it installed and running under Elastix running 32-bit CentOS:

    Code:
    wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/5/afio-2.4.7-1.i386.rpm
    wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/5/buffer-1.19-1.i386.rpm
    
    wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/5/mondo-doc-2.2.8-1.rhel5.noarch.rpm
    wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/5/mindi-busybox-1.7.3-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/5/mindi-2.0.7.1-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/5/mondo-2.2.9.1-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    wget http://mondorescue.linjection.org/ftp/rhel/5/netperf-2.4.4-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    
    yum install cdrecord
    yum install mkisofs
    
    rpm -ivh afio-2.4.7-1.i386.rpm      # Elastix will have 2.5-2, but Mondo wants this ver
    rpm -ivh buffer-1.19-1.i386.rpm     # Elastix will ahve 1.19-2, but Mondo wants this ver
    rpm -ivh mondo-doc-2.2.8-1.rhel5.noarch.rpm
    
    rpm -ivh mindi-busybox-1.7.3-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivh mindi-2.0.7.1-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    rpm -ivh mondo-2.2.9.1-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
    
    rpm -ivh netperf-2.4.4-1.rhel5.i386.rpm
