Subject:   Dump Restore on ZFS root system
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I run a ZFS on root FreeBSD system. I know I can backup with snapshots 
but I want a dump/restore action because I want to transfer this system 
to a UFS virtual FreeBSD machine.
My question is: will dump / (root) make a dump of *ALL* other directories?
