Why?  These are toys compared to the industrial strength fbackup/frecover.

Of course it may be easier to use the former than to use something new for only one time.

Re: fbackup/frecover

To backup use: /usr/sbin/fbackup -0v -f /dev/rmt/0m -i /

Recover command (absolute): /usr/sbin/frecover -xv -f /dev/rmt/0m -i
/path[/file]
To do a relative restore using frecover you need BOTH -x and -X,
ie -xvX

 

Pls refer: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/hpux-data-backup-restore-commands/

Hi Dennis:

 

man fbackup

 

WARNINGS      The fbackup, frecover, and ftio commands are deprecated for creating      new archives.  In a future HP-UX release, creation of new archives      with these commands will not be supported.  Support will be continued      for archive retrieval.  Use the standard pax command (portable archive      interchange) to create archives.  See pax(1).

I assume this is a one time deal.

And the fine print in that warning should have said "Purchase Data Protector".  ;-)
