The solution is too generic. Could you please elaborate more on DCHP specifically eg. what kind of files in which directory need to be backed up and restored? As well as do the DHCP service need to be suspended?

DHCP packages and configurations will be under in /var, DHCP commands will be under /usr, DHCP startup/stop scripts will be under /etc.

So basically you need to backup root, /usr and /var filesystems.

It depands on why kind of backup you want, and how your dhcp server was configured.

If you want to backup the dhcp configuration and the dhcp tables only, eg you store all your dhcp data in /var/dhcp (default location), you can create a tar ball for all the files in that dir, and restore it to the same lacation when you needed.

FYI, for Solaris 9, you can run GUI tool
/usr/sadm/admin/bin/dhcpmgr

to verify your hdcp configureation, export/import dhcp configuration data etc (you can import/export your dhcp configuration to other Solaris 9/10 boxes to make a new dhcp server.

of course, you can perform a full sysytem backup for your production dhcp server to another HD or tape.
