Backup on Tapes:

    Via network:
      To backup the contents of the Unix machine to another, that conts the /dev/nst0 tape drive, enter:
      tar cvzf - / | ssh User@DistantIP "cat > /dev/nst0"
      If tar on the distant server does not directly compress, you will have to remove the "z" option on the command line.

      If you want to rewind the tape before the backup, use the following command:
      tar cvzf - / | ssh User@IP_Distante $(mt -f /dev/nst0 rewind; cat > /dev/nst0)$


Go back
