Using a tape drive (DAT) as the FSArchiver file

Post by jrodrigo » Wed May 25, 2011 1:01 pm

Hi...
Is there any way of making FSArchiver use a tape drive as the destiny / source file.

Example:

Code: Select all

fsarchiver -o savefs /dev/st0 /dev/sda1
I have tried a combination of named pipes + dd and some other things to no avail.
Usually FSArchiver responds something like "not a normal file" and fails.

Any idea or comment will be appreciated.

Thanks.
