DUMP over SSH : Lost Connection



Hi,

I am trying to dump a file system on one machine over the net to a second machine using 'dump' over ssh, and
I am aware of the potential limitations using dump as I am.

The first machine is Fedora 9, the second is SuSE 11

I issue the following commands:
	setenv RSH /usr/bin/ssh
	/sbin/dump -L "Level 0" -0 -v -u -f root machine2:/BckUp/BackUpPC/Machine1_Full_0.dump /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00

from which I get the following error

  DUMP: Connection to machine2 established.
  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Fri Nov 28 10:26:28 2008
  DUMP: Dumping /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 (/) to /BckUp/BackUpPC/OpenGate_Full_0.dump on host root machine2
  DUMP: Excluding inode 8 (journal inode) from dump
  DUMP: Excluding inode 7 (resize inode) from dump
  DUMP: Label: Level 0
  DUMP: Writing 10 Kilobyte records
  DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
  DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
  DUMP: estimated 73855810 blocks.
  DUMP: Lost connection to remote host.

At the moment I think that the problem is that even though 'dump' indicates a connection is established, no valid connection is
made.
At this moment, I am not sure whether the problem is with machine 1 or machine 2, i.e. the ssh_config on machine1 or
sshd_config on machine2. I have modified entries in these configuration files, but with no effect.

I can ssh/scp/sftp from machine1 to machine2 without any problems. 

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Peter
