Using Unraid for rsync (backintime) backup and External Drive Replacement

I decided to replace a bunch of external hard drives with an UNRAID server. Setup to work with rsync and backintime backup software for Linux. Managed to sort out an error with rsync and the samba shares not liking files that start with “._”. This is a great use of my UNRAID system.

UNRAID Update 2 – ZX-DU99D4 V1.11 X99 Motherboard Dual Xeon E5-2650LV3 with 64GB of Ram

I have the base components of my new UNRAID server. I got a Chinese X99 dual CPU motherboard off eBay, it’s the ZX-DU99D4 V1.11. Which I will be running two Xeon E5-2650LV3 with 64GB of Ram (both used of eBay). This will be a great base system for playing with VMs and dockers etc in UNRAID using the ZX-DU99D4, as well as running backups.
