    One strategy using Backup PC is to backup another server using Backup PC. In this paradigm you have one onsite server that manages backup and little else. From there you can backup PCs as the name would imply but you can also backup your ClearOS and other servers. I've even seen deployments where they uses VSS and LVM snapshots to do quite sophisticated backups using Backup PC.

    Dave, I recently removed the old server from the school and found it's not actually as dated as I had thought, so now I'm thinking of using your method of backup by loading clearos and backup pc on the old server, and can backup pc's on the network, but also the main server. Is that correct? So would I just load up the community os edition on the server, add backup pc and would be able to see the main server? What would be backed up?
