backup

Would like to ask whether there is a way to backup the whole vg01 which is a 9 Gb hard drive partition into /u01, /u02, /u03, /home?

Re: backup

Hi,

I gather from your question that wish to
backup all of your vg01 partition, that
has /u01, /u02, /u03, /home in it.

On of the easiest methods is to use 'fbackup'
# /usr/sbin/fbackup -i /u01 -i /u02 -i /u03 -i /home -f /dev/rmt/0m

Replace /dev/rmt/0m with your tape drive device.

Re: backup

thanks for your reply.

Someone told me to use gnutar, what is the different with using fbackup.

Thx

Re: backup

Hi John,

'fbackup' is a backup program specifically
written by HP for HP-UX. Of course there are
many others than can be used, pax, tar, cpio,
dd

I think 'gnutar' is a freebie from 'gnu'
that would probably work, but you would most
likely find that you have to compile it.
Sometimes it is better to use the tools
that are already available to you.

Cheers
