Well....as I explore more into the system, I am beginning to see more
complications. Here is the break down
SGI ONYX Reality Engine 2 running IRIX6.2
2 hard drive, the main one has efs volume (this is where root is)
then the second one mounted to this one( I think) has xfs volume.
Ok...I did a bru backup for the efs volume. And it terminates
succesfully. I have not checked the validity of the backup....is there a
way to do such (high confidence check..I need to make sure this is the
real thing..not some flakey backup).
Then next come the xfs volume HD....I can do xfsdump I assume? If I do
that, I will have a set of backup for just that HD. Then I can use the
backup and dump the data to the HD incase anything gets messed up. I
hope it works....
Does this process sound right? Any suggestion will be welcomed....Much
thanks in advance.
