    Another backup related question (or a possible solution for your
    What about mounting the LMFSs via NFS on the SUN and then "dump" them?
    You must have NFS for your Symbolicses to do this but if you have I
    think it should be a easy way to get a backup on the exabyte.

    But I don't know for shure because we have no NFS on our Symbolicses
    so I can't try. Can someone comment who knows, please?

dump only works on the local file system.  It doesn't work through NFS, even
if the NFS server is a sun.  This is because dump looks at the raw device for
the filesystem to be speedy.

tar, on the other hand, works fine through NFS.
