Following up on my own post, I starting digging into other backup scripts I've written over the years and ran across snippet on a FreeBSD 4.11 box: ### Perform daily backup of ~tillman # Clean up my backup partition # Note! We delay this by 2 hours because mount/umount cause mountd to be # HUPed, which is not atomic and causes a moment EPERM (permissions error) if # any other machine is currently trying to write via NFS sleep 7200 /sbin/umount /exports/tillman.backup1/ && \ /sbin/newfs -v -U /dev/vinum/tillman.backup1 &&\ /sbin/mount /exports/tillman.backup1/ && \ /sbin/dump 0f - /exports/tillman | (cd /exports/tillman.backup1; /sbin/restore -rf - ) If that still holds true in the -current src, the second mount will *definitely* cause me backup problems. I may have to move to keeping the NFS export always mounted, which is not ideal. -T -- Master Tung-shan interviewed a new monk: "What's you name?" "Pen-chi," the monk answered. "Say something more."
