Thread: Tape split question

  1. #1

    Default Tape split question

    Do you have to use tar as the dump "program" when you want to split a large file over two tapes?

    Can you use the local "dump" program such as ufsdump?


  2. #2

    Thumbs up Any dump program is OK.

    You can use any dump program supported by Amanda -- it can be ufsdump, xfsdump, tar, ext2dump, or anything else is fine.

  3. #3


    What kind of scratch space size is needed? Does it need to be as big as the file system?

    Does amanda restore each segment into one dump file before restoring a file that is in the dump file?

    Just wondering how the splitting works?
