Woha, timeout. Are you saying 'dump' produces files in a format *not* guaranteed to work with 'restore' on another system if it is not running the exact same version of FreeBSD? Or having the same file system size? I had always assumed - given that it's a backup tool - that the format of the dump was portable. -- / Peter Schuller, InfiDyne Technologies HB PGP userID: 0xE9758B7D or 'Peter Schuller <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>' Key retrieval: Send an E-Mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Web: http://www.scode.org _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
