Out of curiosity, could you describe your setup a bit more? If there is only one docker instance running in server mode, how do you handle automatic snapshotting on the windows clients?
Are the clients running KopiaUI and they take care of auto running when needed?
The reason i’m thinking of running multiple docker instances in server mode is that it auto-scheduling comes out of the box via the web ui.
Whereas if I used regular clients connecting to the server, i believe i’d have to handle that myself somehow (e.g. via custom cron).
indeed. Each client is running kopiaUI for windows and connects to the server. The clients have their own policies and snapshot according to their plan. As I am using server mode, each client cannot see and access the snapshots of other clients. Only the server reachable by the web-ui can access all snapshots of all clients.
If you want to backup your servers, you can also do it with kopia natively. However, i guess you would need to take care of start-stop scripts (on startup). I am not sure if you have to take care of cron-jobs. I think there is a post about that here in the forum.
