I believe that my problems arise out of subliminal refuse syndrome: the brain refuses to comprehend dump and restore TOs and FROMs. In other words, I'm beginning to see that dump -0af TO ( - or device/file) FROM (device or directory/file) and restore -rf (TO curr.dir FROM device or file)
or dump -0af - (FROM device or file) | restore -rf - (TO device or directory) or do I still not have it right? It's the stdout and stdin that makes me stumble. Do I really need to mount the partitions or can I just dump and restore from device to device directly? The manual says I should be able to dump & restore across the lan too... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
