I am setting up dump/restore on a number of UNIX servers (Digital Unix,
IRIX, SunOS) and see in the man pages for restore that an 'r' option for
a level 0 restore requires that you have a "clear" file system. In fact,
the man page shows a typical level 0 restore with the creation of a new
file system (mkfs/newfs), and then a mount to it. Does this mean I have
to create a new file system, or can I just do an 'rm -r *' to remove all
the files? Wouldn't this accomplish the same thing?
Thanks very much in advance for any thoughts or comments.
