Re: backup up large disks



Thank you for the help.  I do have a 20 gb drive on the system. In my
example I did leave off a couple of digits in the size field and it
calculated the tapes wrong, however I tried it correctly with - a option,
the correct size option and also the blocking factor changed.  To no
avail!!!.  I have other disks on another machine that fail the same way....
Im glad I tried it today to test it.  After some experimenting I find that
the dump command always fails with a disk slice somewhere between six and
seven gb. I dont get it.. again here is the failure on a different machine
as Im taring a backup on the previous machine
Again thanks everyone for the help
