Is the FreeBSD dump format incompatible with Solaris ufsdump/ufsrestore?
I have dumped a FreeBSD filesystem to a remote Solaris DAT drive (using
rdump). The dump is readable with rrestore on the FreeBSD host, but this
is what happens when I try and use the tape on the Solaris system.
sun# ufsrestore ibf 20 /dev/rmt/0
resync restore, skipped 2 blocks
resync restore, skipped 1 blocks
. is not on volume
Root directory is not on tape
I have taken care to make sure that the tape block sizes (blocking factor
times default block size) are identical.
Whose dump is the more *standard*?
