I'm running an XFS system on all partitions on a Linux system.  The 
partitions are on a RAID 5 array.  I have a spare partition that I wanted to 
copy /, /usr, /home over to.  I started with the /, /usr, /home partitions 
mounted and did

xfsdump -J - / | xfsrestore -J - /mnt/newsystem

where / is my root partition (the source) and /mnt/newsystem is the partition 
that has the filesystem I'm copying TO (the target).  Both are mounted during 
the process.

This copied over some files, but not all.  For example, in my usr/bin 
directory  on /mnt/newsystem I'm missing vim while it does exist on /usr/bin. 
 I'm also missing some /bin commands.

Any ideas on what's going wrong here.  The messages indicate that it copies 
succesfully but I'm missing files.

Thank you.
