here is what I've planned for my backup server:
2 x 80GB (1 of them for redundancy)
2 x hard drive fans
The rest will be old hardware and a hard drive for the OS (FreeBSD).
I'll likely have remote servers rsync data (or just run them off its crontab).
Monitoring hard drives with smartmontools and shutdown if its check fails.
Does anyone have any comments/suggestions? I haven't setup a backup server before so I'm not sure how it will turn out (also not sure if rsync is ideal)
