This is not a problem. dump works one filesystem at a time and it looks like you have /usr and /var mounted on seperate filesystems. So, the commands to copy everything are: cd /mnt/other dump 0af - / | restore xf - cd /mnt/other/var dump 0af - /var | restore xf - cd /mnt/other/usr dump 0af - /usr | restore xf - > > home@ on ad0s3 still links to /usr/home so that if I "mount /dev/ad0s3 > /mnt/other" in my working system on ad2, ls /mnt/other/home shows my working > home directory - a bit startling when you first see it.
