If I've understood the archives right the solution is to rsync over  
the whole structure from the primary machine to an secondary/backup  
machine and _when_ the primary dies copy everything to a new machine,  
install box backup and restore the keys. Check and fix the accounts  
(if we have rsynced when someone is doing their backup for an  
example) and we're all set. Have I missed something?

I am in need of a solution where I can have one primary backupserver  
located at the companys LAN for fast backups. But then I need to  
transfer that the primarybackup to an secondary backupserver which  
also is functional (i.e. clients can backup to both the secondary and  
primary backupservers).

And no, overwritten backups is not an issue. My clients don't to  
their backups more than once a week at tops, most do it once a month.  
And from the primary backupserver I am rsyncing over everything each  
night. And I _always_ restore from secondary backup.

Since I have a few companies to setup this on how do you suggest  
using keys? I mean, sure I *could* use the same key for everything.  
but that's not secure *at all*.

If I were to use seperate keys I would need to use one bbstored for  
each company/key, right? And that would require an unique port or IP- 
address.

Thanks,
- Simon
