I'm trying to TAR a number of filesystems that I would like to
compress on-the-fly. The FSs are relatively large, 900MB - 3.1GB, and
I don't have enough free disk space to be able to create full TARs and
Then compress them. The smaller ones I've been able to take care of
so far with 'tar -cFpvf /target/dir/filename.tar /source' and then
compressing them, but that won't work on the bigger FSs.
I have tried 'tar -cFpf /source | compress >
/target/dir/filename.tar', but I can't seem to get it to work. It
creates a 0-size (zero) file (ex: foo.tar.Z).
Anyone have any ideas?
Not that it should make any difference but: AIX 4.3.2 running on an SP
