hole system recovery with DAT40 without manual set-up

hi !

i notified that TapeWare for Linux does not support OBDR. i can backup the files of course.

using SuSe Linux 7.1 kernel 2.4.x

is there a tool to create a tape to recover the complete system. including starting modules, partitioning harddisk, format volumes with ReiserFS and restore all files from tape.

i could do a "dd" command for the hard disk. however, the storage space on tape is smaller than all harddisk if we don't use compression.

booting from tape is not important. recovery cd or disk is okay.

i don't want to buy ARCserve or to wait for TapeWare 7.

Have you looked at Backup Edge from Microlite ( ?

It has the ability to create OBDR tapes under Linux. I've used it (in testing) on an LC2000 successfully.
