Re: Copying Entire Filesystem

Copy where? Different system?
What will be your source / destination OS?

If the OS is the same, then consider using fbackup/frecover ; scp...

Copy to other system through NFS.Same OS.

Re: Copying Entire Filesystem


Through NFS?

Copying the files is one thing, making sure you get a consistent copy is another and potentially a real problem if your intent is to duplicate an Oracle database instance.

These FS's you list appear to be related to an Oracle instance:
oraarch
oralogA/B
mirrlogA/B
sapdata1/2/3/4

Oracle redo logs and datafiles can't just be copied without some preparation at the Oracle database level ( shut down the Oracle instance or set backup mode on the tablespaces ).

Thee thread BV mentioned should give you some pointers to making the copies though.

Hth,
