I see 2 things I think should be included in this (very good) article:

1: I had a problem with dumping multiple filesystems.. when dump got to the 2nd filesystem, it would error out:

DUMP: write error 20 blocks into volume 1
DUMP: Do you want to restart?: ("yes" or "no")

I found a fix for this on a mailing list, which I've added to the beginning of the script in this article... just add the line:

"${MT} seteotmodel 1" right after the variable inits.. this fixed the problem for me.

2: If you're using restore interactively, and you want to access a filesystem dumped other than the first, you can do something like this:

To access the 2nd filesystem dumped, try:

restore -i -s2

the 3rd:

restore -i -s3


Hope this helps.
