Backup the remote essentials

There are many programs, data files, and especially license files that sit out on remote workstations and servers that you may should be backing up remotely.

If backing up the entire system puts a strain on your network, make sure that all the essential files at least get backed up.

Some files may be
/var/flexlm
/usr/local/flexlm
/var/netls
/var/license
/etc/passwd
/etc/hosts
/etc/groups
/etc/netgroups
/etc/shadow
/vmunix
/kernel
etc....
