By "Backup" I mean the typical type of backup - one snapshot of the data at
the weekend and some
incremental backups every day. i don't think this is posible with backup
volumes - so i thought about volume dumps.

i don't want to have all the volumes in our headquarter. so every time a
user openes his word-doc or similar it would be completly transfered over
our VPN - and I can hear the people crying "our fileservers are too slow !"
so seperate fileservers in every district would be a good choice, I think -
would'nt they ?

i thought about every district his own fileserver with the special volume
for them and a readonly volume in our headquarter released every night - so
i could do the volume dump - i'm not very trusted with the "backup" command
but I don't know how I could set up the "shared" part where every user in
every district can read/write to it.

so if you tell me which information you need to know I can provide :-))
