I am trying to restore a ufsdump file into a Solaris 8 zone on a Server & am getting stuck on this. Any ideas?
ufsrestore rf /export/home/test/test.dump                  
mount volume 2                                                    
then enter volume name (default: /export/home/test/test.dump)

My .dump file is in /export/home/test & I am trying to restore it to /zone/sol8/root/test - I am in this directory when I run the ufsrestore command.

What was the ufsdump directive you used?
Did you hit enter? What happened?

Yes, tried <Enter> & got the following:

Wrong volume (1)                                                  
Mount volume 2                                                    
then enter volume name (default: /export/home/test/test.dump)  

Could the dump file be corrupt?

Did you use ufsdump 0f /export/home/test/test.dump?
Is it an incremental backup
ufsdump 1f /export/home/test/test.dump?

run:
ufsrestore if /export/home/test/test.dump and see if you get a different response.

The problem is your use of the c option sine you are not using a tape there is no need to use the c option.

the dump file might be made up of two sections.

when dumping to a file, do not use the c flag.
look at /etc/dumpdates to see whether it create a two section of the same dump process.
If it has, you may have to use the s flag with a section designation
ufsrestore rfs filename 1
i.e. the initial dump will be offset 0, the second will be offset of 1.
You always have to feed last tape first.
