Re: Error message when using vdump

The error message tells you what is wrong. If you want to vdump a directory tree (instead of a full filesystem) you must use the -D option. See the vdump man page.

Re: Error message when using vdump

man vdump says
-D Performs a level 0 backup on the specified subdirectory. This option
overrides any backup level specification in the command. If this option
is specified, the AdvFS user and group quota files and the fileset
quotas are not backed up.

It seems that this fileset is not mounted.
Please check that.

Re: Error message when using vdump

Re: Error message when using vdump

Hi,

you should see it with mount.
If it is supposed to be a mount point then it should be in /etc/fstab.
Otherwise use as said the -D option, which allows you to use a start point for vdump below the mount point. I would not worry about that. Have a look whether the data is there and then dump it.

greetings,

Re: Error message when using vdump

Hi,

You are trying to vdump /usr/users/IASS_Usr
This is a directory within the fileset users in the file domain users_domain.

If you do a df on /usr/users you'll get the filedomain#fileset information, that is shown on your original picture.

Around here on my test virtual alpha, trying to vdump /usr/bin which is a subdirectory of /usr gives the same error you got.

# vdump -0uf /tmp/test.vdump /usr/bin
path : /usr
dev/fset : usr_domain#usr
type : advfs
advfs id : 0x4803a13d.000c0df0.1
vdump: /usr/bin is not a mounted fileset; mount fileset or use -D to dump.


# df /usr/bin
Filesystem 512-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
usr_domain#usr 5234352 728178 4473472 14% /usr

If I modify the vdump command as suggested by the error message:

# vdump -0 -Du -f /tmp/test.vdump /usr/bin
path : /usr/bin
dev/fset : usr_domain#usr
type : advfs
advfs id : 0x4803a13d.000c0df0.1
