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?

    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.

    Default

    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?

    Thanks
