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?

The ufsdump command isually writes to tape but cou can instruct it to use a flat file instead.
That's what the "f" option is used for.
Standard is to use /dev/rmt0 (or something similiar), which is a tape device.
Therefore, it always thinks it's writing to a tape (device), hence the message.

Make sure to write the dump file NOT into your root filesystem, but somewhere else. Example:
ufsdump 0ucf /export/home/root-fs-dump
