Why not `dump | restore'?
Mikolaj Rydzewski ?????:
Hello to everyone here,
I'd like to share with you some strange problem I encountered recently.
I wanted to test procedure for server upgrade. So I decided to perform
such test using VirtualBox software. First I wanted to make some basic
tests, I installed fresh 8.0-REL, everything seemed to work fine, up
to the point I ran (with separate virtual drive mounted under /mnt):
find -x ./ | cpio -o | (cd /mnt; cpio -i)
cpio threw error messages 'cannot create file', some files were
restored correctly, some were corrupted. I performed similiar test
several times, with errors every time.
Has anybody got any clue what was wrong? Is it a known issue? Is there
any configuration option to fix it?
