Hi all,

  I need to build a NFS CentOS 5.1 based server with LVM and snaphosts for 
disaster recovering to serve storage to three ESX servers for a development 
dept. I have 500 GB for storage. Data that I need to store on this server is 150 
GB and can grow to 210 GB to the end of year ...

  My questions are:

  - Is it possible to do some type of scripting to do data snapshots every day 
and then copy to a remote server?? Some example, please??

  - How can I restore snapshot data on the production server if I need to 
recover it??

  Openfiler or FreeNAS isn't an option to do this task (customer requeriment).
