Since we started using xfs, all our backups were done using xfsdump on
remote tape drives, handled by a SunOS sparc box. Now that this sparc
box is dead, I connected the tape drives directly on the linux box
containing the XFS filesystems.
The xfsdump still works, but now, the dumps are split in multiple
files of ~300MB each on the tape drives, which breaks our backup
scripts. These expect to find one file per dump (for dump listing
I have read the xfsdump manpage, and especially the '-d' (media file
size) option, but I am unable to find the equivalent option value for
the '-a' (auto-size, aka write until end of tape) option of the
"traditional" dump tool. Do I have to specify an arbitrary high file
Any hint about this ?
Many thanks in advance.
