Perhaps /home is not a mountpoint?

thanks methyl for replay
but the solution were :
dump -0f /dev/hdc /home
and it worked correctly

Just for completeness, what is the output from:
mount|grep "/home"

df -k /home

The "dump" program will not update /etc/dumpdates unless you are backing up a mountpoint.

thanks methyl for ur completeness replay
the command u mentiond didnt output anything
and the df -k dont show the home under it !

Which means that /home was not a mountpoint. This is why "dump" would not let you try to update the "dumpdates" file.
