dump support new e2fsprogs-1.42 64bit feature (>16TB fs)
Last modified: 2013-05-14 08:13:21 EDT
It would be great if dump could support the new '64bit' feature added in e2fsprogs-1.42, for filesystems size > 16TB :
[root@fileserver ~]# dumpe2fs -h /dev/sdb1 | grep fea
dumpe2fs 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
Filesystem features: has_journal ext_attr dir_index filetype needs_recovery extent 64bit flex_bg sparse_super large_file huge_file uninit_bg dir_nlink extra_isize
Journal features: journal_incompat_revoke FEATURE_I1
[root@fileserver ~]# dump -0 -f /dev/null -a -h 0 -b 512 /dev/sdb1
DUMP: mount: bad UUID
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Sat Dec 3 23:45:04 2011
DUMP: Dumping /dev/sdb1 (/mnt/raid) to /dev/null
DUMP: Unsupported feature(s) 0x80 in filesystem
/dev/sdb1: Filesystem has unsupported feature(s) while opening filesystem
DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
currently in Fedora 19 we have following version:
Both versions should support 64BIT for filesystems bigger than 16TB.
In release notes for e2fsprogs
is mentioned that 16TB is supported. Especially 1.42.6.
The bug is closed with CURRENTRELEASE.
