Re: sssu & snapshot

on you first list, I would flush/'sync' the file system after (1) close DB.

Of course you can present the snapshot to another operating system. The EVA presents just blocks of data and does not know what a file system is.

The question is whether you can find a file system implementation that is understood by both, Linux and HP-UX. That is not exactly my area of expertise, so I hope others tune in with their knowledge.
