I realize that a lot of folks prefer dump / restore for system backups, however, to dump to tape, I would recommend using tar since that's what it does best. As long as the system sees the tape drive, tar -c / dumps everything to the tape drive. -- Micheal Patterson Network Administration Cancer Care Network 405-917-0600 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
