NAME

amsuntar - Amanda Application to interface with native tar utility available on solaris platforms

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

Amsuntar is an Amanda Application API script. It should not be run by users directly. It uses Solaris bundled tar utility to backup and restore data. Currenty ACLs from ZFS file system can only be backed up using the solaris supplied tar utility.

The diskdevice in the disklist (DLE) must be the directory to backup.

Solaris 10 supports Role Based Access Control(RBAC) which is enabled by default. To run backup operations using sun tar utility by under privileged user like amandabackup, amandabackup user need to have proper roles and profiles, specially "Media Backup" profile/role. This can be done using usermod -P "Media Backup" amandabackup command.

PROPERTIES

This section lists the properties that control amsuntars functionality. See amanda-applications(7) for information on application properties and how they are configured.

BLOCK-SIZE

Optional tar read or write block size. The default is 256.

DIRECTORY

If set, suntar will backup from that directory instead of the diskdevice set by the DLE. On restore, the data is restore in that directory instead of the current working directory.

EXTENDED-ATTRIBUTES

Include extended attributes in archive. The default is YES.

EXTENDED-HEADERS

Write tar file with extended headers. With this optiion the modification time is maintained with a granularity of microseconds,Long file names and file sizes greater than 8GB can be archived. The default is YES.

SUNTAR-PATH

The path to the suntar binary. The default is set when Amanda is built.

LANG

Default LANG is "C". suntar require an UTF-8 LANG if you have UTF-8 filename and it is configured for extended headers. A good value can be "en_US.UTF-8" if that locale is installed on your machine.
