flarcreate / flash archive backup of root (that's SDS/metadevice)
Posted on 2008-10-04
I would like to take "flar create" of the root partition but "df -k" showed it's
an "/dev/md/..." metadevice.
Would it work? Any precautions when doing recovery/restore?
Suppose I destroy the root metadevice & just want to restore the flash
archive to a simple disk partition for booting up, would this work (I
don't mind losing the metadevice mirroring/RAID features & replace
with a simple disk partition)
