Will cPanel Backups work with a 2 server setup?

    I am running a two server setup (1 for web/http/etc & 1 as a dedicated database server) with WHM/cPanel running on the web server.

    Is it possible to use the cPanel backup in a situation like this?

    I'm not sure if it is relative but I own and operate a number of larger sized forums so I needed a dedicated database server. Only the databases are housed on that server and it has a lot of room left.

    What I would ideally like to have happen is cPanel handle the backups every few days and store them on the database server. If that isn't an option I have an extra hard drive available on the web server outside of the RAID array.

    Thanks

    we have one setup like this also. Works great with backup but restore is a litle more difficult you va eto move db to mysql server by hand (I think) never had to use it :)

    Can anyone confirm this? Is this true? Does one have to manually move the DB to the clustered MySQL server?
