Restoring Cluster Files

You can restore the ZFS root file system to a new disk.

You can restore a cluster or node from a unified archive, or you can restore specific files or file systems. Insert a new Sec 2 here for the content below.

Before you start to restore files or file systems, you need to know the following information.

  • Which tapes you need

  • The raw device name on which you are restoring the file system

  • The type of tape drive you are using

  • The device name (local or remote) for the tape drive

  • The partition scheme of any failed disk, because the partitions and file systems must be exactly duplicated on the replacement disk
