Specifying a local tape device

You can use a local tape device to back up the data.

Step

  1. To specify local tape devices for a backup, use the f option and provide one or more tape devices, separated by commas, as a parameter to the f option.

    Note: You cannot combine local and remote tape devices in a single command, and you can write to only one remote machine in a command.

Example

The following command specifies to write one tape file with one device:

dump 0f rst0a /vol/vol0

The following list describes the elements of the command line:
0
Does a full backup.
f
Specifies that a tape device is supplied in the command line.
rst0a
The tape device.
/vol/vol0
The dump path.
