thanks for your reply, and thanks for your offer. I've heard about bacula
and know it requires a bacula-server. However, as we have a limited amount

Although, I wanted to gather information how to do this with the setup
already in place, not requiring additional servers.

rsync using hardlinks. However, stock rsnapshot backups only to local
