When trying to backup to a DLT drive on a RedHat Linux 6.2 machine (x86),
from a Solaris (7)
machine using ufsdump, I get the following error:
$ ufsdump -0uf admin2:/dev/nst0 /
DUMP: Writing 32 Kilobyte records
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Wed Oct 18 17:43:38 2000
DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
DUMP: Dumping /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 (web-1:/) to admin2:/dev/nst0.
DUMP: Mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
DUMP: Mapping (Pass II) [directories]
DUMP: Estimated 3934176 blocks (1920.98MB).
DUMP: rmtstatus: expected response size 24, got 28
DUMP: This means the remote rmt daemon is not compatible.
DUMP: Lost connection to remote host.
DUMP: Bad return code from dump: 1
To me, this points to a compatability problem between Solaris and Linux
(for rmt). FWIW, there
was a bug logged in FreeBSD, with the same problem. See:
(Solaris is obviously a pretty major player, and not being able to backup
from Solaris to Linux
is a bit of a downer).
P.S. There doesn't seem to be an "rmt" package mentioned in this bugzilla,
so I had to specify it as the "dump" component :(
