I had this question after viewing Solaris SUN OS 4.1.3 machine clone
#dump 0ucf root.dump /
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Mon Nov 7
DUMP : Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
DUMP: Dumping /dev/rsd0a (/) to root.dump
DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
DUMP: estimated 97024 blocks (47.38MB) on 1.11 tape(s).
DUMP: mapping (Pass III) [directories]
DUMP: mapping (Pass IV) [regular files]
/: write failed file system is full
DUMP: Tape write error 1255 feet into tape 1
DUMP: NEEDS ATTENTION: Do you want to restart?: ("yes" or "no")
I have executed the dump command as it is?
dump 0ucf root.dump /
I was following it as ufsdump format as mentioned in earlier post.
Yes I feel so it is running out of space but why the command is directing to tape, what should be dump command accordingly to store in disk?
