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
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.
