I use bacula for my home lan and fbackup on hpux.
bacula uses a mysql database to keep track of your tapes (which I thought was very cool)
Thanks to all who addressed my question. Further study showed, obviously, there is no way to let dump be interactive from cron, regardless of switches.
So, I shall research bacula, amanda, screen, and tar, and to get going immediately, I'll run a manual 0 level dump and then cron for level 1 for a bit. I do have a couple of BIG files which will not be updating, so once on tape, they will be fine.
Again thanks to all for the help and suggestions.
Great email list.
