I want to backup a solaris system which has veritas file system. So
far I have tried ufsdump, cpio, tar, all failed.
Is there any tools or commands to do this?
cpio and tar work with any file system. There is no problem with VXFS.

Do not put all your trust in root vegetables
Since the machine is T4, and use fiber channel disk. we found that the
disk look like ( use format command)
c1t0d0 <SUN36G cyl 24620 alt 2 hd 27 sec 107>
backup, it copied the id. While recover on another machine, it can not
recognize the id, and that is the reason why fail. We have manually
fixed the id and now the system can boot.

Some time ago I was involved in discussion on this news group regarding the
design of a new file system for Linux. The main aim is to support dynamic size
changing by adding/removing partitions from the file system at run time without
interrupting processes that are using the file system. Another major feature is
logging so that a system crash or power failure can be recovered from without
data loss or an excessive amount of time spent running FSCK.
