Between two SPS 2001 servers?

You can use the SPS 2001 backup and restore commands to do this (i.e. create
a clone of a workspace on another SPS 2001 server). The two servers have to
be configured identically.

This approach isn't effective you want to do two-way synchronization of
document libraries in two different workspaces/servers.

Yes ... Basically, we want to have two SPS2001 servers in two locations. The
backup/restore option wont really work as it needs to be a 2-way incremental
update, as you said. The idea is to have a two servers running so that in the
event of a server failing, we have an immediate alternative. I would also like
users to be able to use whichever server is local to them.

The reason I need this is because we had a RAID-5 disk failure. Obviously this
would not normally be a huge issue, but during the disk restore another disk
failed followed by another. It took a full day to get the problem resolved.

If it's possible, you can also consider having all of the authoring done on
one server to that you can use the second sever as a "read only" slave.

Otherwise, it would be relatively easy to write an WebSS asynch event
handler to capture the document changes and queue them for transfer to the
other machine.

we are having a similar problem and haven`t found a solution yet.

Could you elaborate on this. I am not much of a techie.

In the Web Storage System (WebSS) (the underlying data store used by
SPS2001), you can develop and register an asynchronous event handler that
records all new and changes files in SPS2001 for all workspaces on a server
or just a particular workspace.

Then, develop a second process that periodically gathers up the list of new
and changed content and pushes it to your remote system.

This does require medium to high SPS2001/WebSS development skills.
