We are setting up a system which dumps to set of
machines with lots of IDE discs which we treat as Virtual
Tape Drives. Sucessive runs cycle through the available
servers in turn. Although the majority of the files are
"closed" code (NetApp), we have some Linux systems with
local FS which we dump. To get the dumps to work we have
to shuffle the /etc/dumpdates file to make it appropriate.
Would there be a problem in passing the name of the
dumpdates file as an argument to dump ?
(Would this allow safe simultaneous dumps ?)
