using foxpro with a Linux/SAMBA LAN server.

using foxpro with a Linux/SAMBA LAN server.

Post by Eric A. Merce » Tue, 04 Feb 1997 04:00:00

My parent's are about to move from a Xenix/foxpro system (serial
terminals & all) to a Windows LAN.

They currently use SBT's Pro Series software w/ foxpro, and they expect
to use the windows version after they change systems.  I would like to
have them use a linux server running SAMBA software instead of a windows
NT server.

For those who don't know, Linux is a freely available unix kernel for
PCs, and SAMBA is a freely available MS Lan-Manager compatible disk &
printer server package for unix systems.

ANYWAY, I was just wondering if anyone is using a samba server to serve
foxpro databases to their LAN.  Of course if there is anyone using SBT's
software with such a setup they'll get extra credit.

If you have any info, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

1. Backing up d3/Linux and samba on DAT using CRON

We have a new DAT that is working great.  I have one set of tapes that
I rotate through to backup d3/Linux and another that I rotate through
to backup our "user" files in Linux.  Prior to rolling out our
installation, we were using cron to back up the Linux files on one of
our test boxes, so I know that's do-able, but I would like to
concatenate the tar of my user files to a d3/linux file-save. I would
also like to have cron fire all that off for me and end up with a
single tape per night.  Any assistance will be appreciated.
