I'm trying to backup a particular home directory, /home/oracle.  I do the following command:

# ufsdump 0uf /tmp/oracle.backup /home/oracle

The dump aborts saying there's no mount point for /home/oracle.  How do I get the mount point?

check the output of

  df -k /home/oracle

it is possible that /home/oracle is a sub dir of the mount point /home. The output will also tell you if you are using automounter and will be pointing to the locally mounted filesystem, /export/home, most likely. But, first check df.
