Hello all (and happy holidays).
I am considering an autoloader for use with a linux backup server - but
after checking the man page for dump(8), it appears that the version
distributed with Red Hat does not have an option for pausing after having
reached the end-of-media to allow for automatic tape switching (like the
"l" option in Solaris' ufsdump(1m) ).
Am I correct in assuming, therefore, that linux dump cannot be used with
autoloaders - ? Are there alternative versions of dump available with this
functionality, or will this require a commercial solution?
The primary motivation for this type of solution for management was the
ability to integrate NT and un*x backups for low $. Anyone have
encouraging accounts of using smbfs for this purpose (i.e. this works well
Thanks for your advice, wisdom, anecdotes, etc.
