Im trying to write a small backup script which I have put in
/etc/periodic/weekly. The script is as follows......
#weekly backup of chosen files
tar -cf /dev/sa0 /var/ftp /home /etc /usr/local
echo "backing up the disks"
echo "There was a problem" 1>&2
echo "Finished at `/bin/date`."
Now I have no experience at bash scripting as was wonderng if someone could
give me some help with the if statement. Basically im trying to test to see if
the machine knows that /dev/sa0 (my tape drive) is accessable. If it is then it
continus to the backup, if not then it gives the error message and echos the
Any help would be much appreciated.
