backups - dump
Posted on 1998-09-02
I have just received an hp dds3 tape drive that uses 16G - 24G tapes - when I use the following command on a filesystem that is only 1.2G I have to change the tapes quite often, this is the erason I got the dds3 tape drive, so that I do not have to change the tapes. the command that I use is the following:
/sbin/dump 0uf /filesystem /dev/st0 - I think that I am just missing a parameter so that i do not have to change the tape. Can some one please help me.
