Question remote backup ?


MachineA has the tape drive.
Currently using ufsdump to backup MachineA.

ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0n /

Currently using ufsdump on MachineB to MachineA's tape drive (appending to same tape).

ufsdump 0uf MachineA:/dev/rmt/0n /

Is there a way to use ufsdump on MachineA to backup MachineB's filesystem on MachineA's tape drive?

I would like to do it this way because I have two separate crons (one on MachineA, one on MachineB) running backups to the same tape drive and would rather have one cron on MachineA that will do both.

Running on solaris 5.8

Thanks in advance
