I replaced my system (root) disk on my Power Indigo2 (IRIX 6.5.17m)
last week via a disk cloning procedure. After formatting the drive
with fx I copied over the volume header files via dvhtool and used
xfsdump/xfsrestore to copy the files. Everything went smoothly and
the new disk works just fine. The filesystem looks good and I have no
problems accessing or creating any files on it.
Unfortunately, when I started a Full backup using the Backup and
Restore Manager, the root disk was apparently skipped. All other
internal and external SCSI disks were properly backed up. I tried
starting the procedure again this morning using the
/usr/sysadm/privbin/backup command instead of the GUI process, but I'm
getting similar results.
This is the second time I've replaced the system disk via cloning (did
it three years ago) and this did not occur the first time. The only
thing I can think of that may be confusing Backup is that the new disk
is quite large (50 Gb). Is there a size limit to filesystems that
Backup will try to process?
Thanks in advance,
