    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.
