Disable the autobackup of Time Machine during a BRU Server backup.
If you use Time Machine in conjunction with BRU Server on Mac OS X then it is a good idea to turn off Time Machine for the duration of the BRU Server backup. This process can either be automated or performed manually. In either case, these steps demonstrate how to turn off Time Machine for the duration of a BRU Server backup on a system where Time Machine is running.
Important Note: These steps are to be done by the system administrator. If you are not the system administrator, please contact your system administrator to have them perform these steps.
10.4 and Earlier Note: These steps do not need to be performed on any machines running Mac OS X 10.4 and earlier as they do not have Time Machine. This applies to 10.5 or later systems only.
We will use the BRU Server "pre" and "post" scripts to pause the Time Machine operations while the BRU Server backup or restore operations are running. The pre script will stop the Time Machine service and the post script will start it running as normal. This will allow you to automate the process.
sudo pico /usr/local/bru-server/pre
Note: If this file is a blank or new file, make sure you add the Hash Bang to the top, usually: #!/bin/bash
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bru-server/pre
The first part - stopping the Time Machine service is complete. Also, you have successfully created a pre-script and made it executable for BRU Server to execute on the client system prior to BRU Server running a backup. Part two will show you how to make a post script.
sudo pico /usr/local/bru-server/post
Note: If this file is a blank or new file, make sure you add the ShaBang to the top, usually: #!/bin/bash
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bru-server/post
The combination of pre and post can be used to control other system operations that should be performed before and/or after a BRU Server job is run. Refer to the BRU Server Admin Guide for more information about these files.
