dump and restore autoloader support

dump and restore autoloader support

Post by Kerry Co » Wed, 03 May 2000 04:00:00



Are there any specific instructions you can give dump fordoing
autoloader support.  I have an HP auotoloader that holds 6 4mm tapes.
Just wondering if I can set it so that it will run multiple cron jobs
and do backups on several machines in one night without any manual
assistance.
Dump and restore work just fine when one tape is selected and loaded,
but I'd like it to rotate through the other tapes as well.  I know
ufsdump does this, but I'd like to know if the latest dump, rpm release
dump-0.4b15-1 running Red Hat Linux 6.1 on a Athlon 600 with 128 MBs of
RAM.
Thanks.

1. autoloader features under dump/restore?

I'm using an HP C1553A autoloader for doing tape backups.  It holds 5
4mm tapes and allows for quick backups of DDS-2 tapes for up to 4 GBs of
data.  Just wondering if anyone has used this same piece fo hardware
with dump and has been able to get it to automatically switch tapes when
one is done.
I personally like dump and have been pleased to se its progress in the
last while.  It's getting closer to the Solaris ufsdump utility.
Thanks.
