Re: backing up large file systems.
We've had good results using barmar's Ultrix RTAPE hack. It works fine for 9-track
reel-to-reel. We also have an Exabyte attached to the Ultrix machine and using
the same RTAPE code, I could back up files to the cartridge. However, I could
could only write the amount of data that would fit on a 9-track tape. Someone in
the process, and I haven't tried to track it down, is forcing a 9-track tape size.
I haven't tried to use RTAPE on SUNs yet.
