Does fsarchiver support UFS2 and ZFS file systems?

FreeBSD is using UFS2 while OpenSolaris is using ZFS filesystem.

These files-systems are not supported, and fsarchiver only runs on linux.

Will there be plans to support UFS2 and ZFS in future?

By the way, I made some tests on fsarchiver using the latest and highest LZMA compression. Here is the link:

fsarchiver can only support filesystem that can be mounted with a good read-write support in the linux kernel.
There is no stable UFS write support, so it can't work. There is a zfs fuse project, but I am not sure it's really
stable and maintained.

Hi,

Could you go through both my backup and restore scripts using fsarchiver and partimage and see if there are any mistakes? Thank you!

These scripts are quite long, it's quite complicated to check that there is no error in it.
