I wanted to copy a file system to another partition. To get
everything, I used xfsdump/restore with the "-J" option, which is
stated to not update the online dump inventory.
My dumps, since the 1st of the month have been working
fine up to this morning -- They were levels
0,2,5,4,7,6,9,8,9,9 and this mornings was a '1'. It failed
saying that the last level 0 dump upon which it was based had
failed -- but AFAIK, that's not possible if the intermediate
(2,5,4,7,6,9,8,9,9) dumps all worked. The only thing that couldl
have thrown it off would have been my xfsdump/restore (a data copy)
where both the dump and restore used the '-J' option (I encoded it
in a script as:
xfsdump -b 64k -l 0 -J -p 300 - "$1" | xfsrestore -b 64k -B -F -J - "$2"
Do I misunderstand the function of the "-J" switch? Shouldn't
my level '1' dump have ignored the "datacopy" dump I performed with
Or was(is) there another option I should have(be) using?
Is there any easy way to get my dumps back-on-track? I.e. to kick off a normal
level-1 dump and have it be based on my June-1 lvl 0 dump?
