We have not tried to back up a specific partition onto the Sun. I doubt
this would work as I think partitions use physical block mappings,
and you would have no way to pull partitions back from the sun and
return them to the same identical blocks.
This isn't true; LMFS uses relative block addressing to the start of the
LMFS partition, so moving a partition to a different physical starting
address (and different extents on disk) works perfectly.
Of course, the idea of
lmfs partitions does not exist once to translate onto unix file servers.
