How to set "pax" as default for make_net_recovery

Hello Team,

Besides the automatic make_net_recoveries, from time to time we start a make_net_recovery using a pull-process, i.e. we open the ignite gui, select the client and select "create network recovery".
A wizard opens, asks some details and at the end the make_net_recovery is taking from the client.

Question: The wizard by defaults suggest to take "tar" as recovery archive format;
Is it possible to make the wizard take "pax" as the default recovery archive format ?

brgds,


Raf

I guess it can be done by creating a default file on the ignite server for each clients(
/var/opt/ignite/clients//recovery/defaults ) with an entry like below

ARCHIVE_TYPE=pax

Hi Johnson,


my defaults file:
#
# This file is used to specify defaults for make_net_recovery.
# It is overwritten every time the Recovery UI is run,
# even if an archive is not created. It should not be used
# as a reliable source of information about any given archive.
#
RECOVERY_TYPE=net
RECOVERY_LOCATION=s51ud21:/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/u51e0be
TAPE_DESTINATION=none
RECOVERY_DESCRIPTION=Recovery Archive
SAVE_NUM_ARCHIVES=1
ARCHIVE_TYPE=pax

However the GUI again prompts me to select the archive type, and the default the GUI presents is TAR, so no success.

brgds,

Raf
