Description Mark Harig 2003-07-15 16:42:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-27.7.x i686; en-US; 0.7)

Description of problem:
In section "dump/restore: Not Recommended!" of the System
Administration Primer, the text says that due to the kernel's design, the
dump/restore utilities should not be used.  I asked the mailing list for this
(SourceForge) project whether this recommendation was accurate.  According to
their reply it is not:


The message at this link includes a reply by the primary developer of the
dump/restore utilities that says the points made are "100% accurate."  Because
the message at that link contradicts your recommendation, it appears that the
recommendation should be removed and an errata should be issued.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhl-sap(EN)-9-HTML-RHI (2003-02-20T01:08)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read Red Hat's recommendation at the URL listed above.
2.Read the reply at the URL provided in the description.

Actual Results:  The maintainer of the dump/restore utilities disagrees with Red
Hat's recommendations about those utilities.

Expected Results:  Either the recommendation should be removed or further
clarification should be provided by Red Hat.
