Are 8mm streamers supported on HP-UX 9.03?
Is it possible to make recovery system on the remote tape drive?
Could it be 8mm tape drive?
I'm planing an upgrade of HP 715 running HP-UX 9.03 to version 10.01
I'd like to backup files and create the recovery system before upgrading.
The problem is that I've no DDS tape drive or cartridge tape drive (it is
9 track 1/2" - am I rigth?). The only streamer device I have is Sun's 8mm
5GB streaming device connected to RS/6000 machine ( :-) ).
I've found that fbackup accepts only DDS and cartridge devices.
To make "standard" backup I can pipe backup data through the net to
8mm tape drive, but what about creating recovery system (for tha case the
upgrade fails) onto remote 8mm streamer? I expect it must be recognized
during boot process initiated from ROM.
Any ideas greatly appreciated. If possible write directly to me.
