Re: backing up large filesystems
Date: Tue, 20 Jun 89 15:03 PDT
Are there better solutions to backing up a large filesystem than 40 megabyte
cart tapes? We now have ~20 tape full dumps and expect to double that soon.
One possibility I'm looking into is using RTAPE and a Sun to back up to a 2
gigabyte video cartridge. Does anyone have experience with this?

You may do just as well to use ILA-NFS and mount your lispm from a SUN, then
use TAR to dump to the vid. cart. We're planning to do this soon
RTAPE even between two lispms is usually flakey-flakey. Our CE doesn't
recommend using the tape except locally as a result of our and other site's
experiences he's run into....
You can also get a Cypher drive for your lispm... I'd recommend that over
