Use git.  You won't regret it.  The command syntax will seem abstruse at first, because it is, but that's par for the course for version control software.  They all have profoundly stupid and clumsy command interfaces.

Git can automatically propagate (i.e. backup) to any number of other systems.  Google  "git hooks" and you should be able to figure out something suited to your particular situation.

Subject: [rancid] Rancid - Changing Config Backup Directory


My company is running Rancid on Ubuntu 16.04. Currently, our server running Rancid is not backed up. If we lose this server, we lose our saved configs. Is there a way to change the default save location for config backups to a UNC network path to a windows server? If this is possible, can you tell me which file to edit with the new save location?
