I want find out where the backup script of a Fedora 8 server is. I haven't found it so far ( my Linux knowledge is very spare). I looked with
crontab -l and I only can find a tempdelete.pl. Than I looked into
/etc/cron.daily and I can see
Nothing which looks like a backup script if taken the name. Nothing in the
/etc/cron.hourly directory and
etc/cron.weekly looks similar.
The backup script includes backup from Windows and Linux machines (about 5 machines). I also saw that there is a separate backup user. It came to my mind that the backups are started from the other machines, not from the machine which holds the backup. I also looked under
/mnt and there are three entries, but all are empty.
I looked on one Windows machine and didn't found something in the task planner. Also the other backup software which is on this machine doesn't make this backup.
How can I find out how the backup mechanism is working? Hope someone can help me out.
Yes, I inherited it from my precursor. I think it is a script, because no backup system was mentioned. On one Windows machine there is
CA ARCserve Backup Manager, but it only makes backup on tapes. My precursor told me that it exists and one time I looked on it and the disk space is now empty. Therefore I want to find out how the backup looks like. I don't really know if it is running, I only saw that the diskspace is empty and thats why I think it is running. I add an excerpt of
/var/log, but I don't know if it is logged.

In which log file should I look? In
cron I see this
