Re: Reg: Porting UFS/VxFs to ext2 (fwd)



Hello Sir,

  The problem is that the data disks capacity is huge..infact it runs upto
some Terra bytes. Isn't there a way to avoid backing and restoring on
another disk? 

 The problem will be solved if there is WRITE support to UFS/VxFS in
linux. 


Regards,
Srikanth
