We are having problems will our backup on our E3500 (solaris2.6). We
backup to a StorEDGE L280 device.
We are running a script that it supposed to do a full backup at the
weekend (sunday) and an incremental backup from monday through to
sunday. We are running veritas file system ver. **. As far as I am
aware this has never worked and does a full backup everynight.
The backups are taken via ufs and vfs. The reason being for this is
that vfs doesnt back up ufs filesystems (or atleast the the
verion we have doesnt).
The problem is that the data increase on the server means we can no
longer do a full backup everynight so, we need to get the incremental
backup working. The vfs command for running the incremental backup
appears to be correct. E.g. /usr/sbin/vxdump 1ulbf 96 $TAPE $dir |&
grep v and yet even when you run the command manually it still
does a full backup. Is there a problem with Veritas File Syetm?
