SUMMARY: UFSDUMP and single files

Well, I thought Buddy Lumpkin was onto something when he suggested the
following command syntax:

ufsdump 0f /dev/rmt/0cbn /export/home ./foo1/foo2/test.ksh

when the path to the single file wanted is:


but that dumps the entire filesystem at /export/home.

One person suggested that ufsdump was strictly a "ufs filesystem" dump
but that is not correct as I can dump single files that are located
elsewhere on my Sun, i.e.:

ufsdump 0f /tmp/dumpfile /opt/SUNWspci2/drivers/win98/sisaudio/

works just fine.

I still cannot dump my SunPCi image which is at:


{clg} zoso: ufsdump 0f /tmp/dumpfile /zoso/pc_images_backup/C.diskimage
  DUMP: Writing 32 Kilobyte records
  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Wed May 15 09:58:27 2002
  DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
  DUMP: Dumping /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s5 (zoso:/zoso) to /tmp/dumpfile.
  DUMP: Mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
  DUMP: Cannot find filesystem mount point for
  DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.

where zoso is:

/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s5    29160814 26983272 1885934    94%    /zoso

Thanks to all who responded to my plea for help! Best I can do is:

ufsdump 0f /tmp/dumpfile /zoso/pc_images_backup/

which gets the complete directory where C.diskimage is stored.
