I need to dump my filesystem on a Solaris 8. I want to haye a singel dump of
each partition. Any idees how to do this??

Best regards,

1. ufsdump 0f /dir/filesystem.dump /filesystem requires second tape?

When I do
ufsdump 0f /dir/filesystem.dump /filesystem
on a large filesystem, it tells me that I need a second tape.

Then I use
ufsdump 0cf /dir/filesystem.dump /filesystem
and it seems to work. But I think it still has a limit there.
Is there a option to tell ufsdump it is a filesystem, not a tape,
so that there would not be a second tape? Thanks.
