Thank you for your reply . Can you please help me on the real scenario , as
the followings?
My local(source) CentOS server @
My remote CentOS client @
On the local system :
#df -m
Filesystem              Mounted on
/dev/hda3                 /
/dev/hda1                 /boot
tmpfs                      /dev/shm
On the local system , issue the followings to make client and server as
identical :
#dump -0uvf - /dev/hda3 | ssh root at -c "restore -rf - /"
#dump -0uvf - /dev/hda1 | ssh root at -c "restore -rf - /boot"
#dump -0uvf - /dev/shm | ssh root at -c "restore -rf - /tmpfs"
Can you please confirm if my understanding is right?
