    Hi Managers,

    A slight issue here with ufsdumping a Solaris 8 box to a
    Solaris 9 box through SSH.

    I've already set up and tested ssh to the server with the
    tape drive on, and it connects with no password prompt from
    the root account on the system with the data to back up.

    The command I'm using :

    ufsdump 0uf - /dev/md/rdsk/d33 | ssh r280n "dd obs=8192 of=/dev/rmt0n"

    abc2:#ufsdump 0uf - /dev/md/rdsk/d33 | ssh r280n "dd obs=8192
    This is a private system for authorised users only. System use
    is monitored.
      DUMP: Writing 32 Kilobyte records
      DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Thu Jul 31 10:42:05 2003
      DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
      DUMP: Dumping /dev/md/rdsk/d33 (abc2:/opt) to standard output.
      DUMP: Mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
      DUMP: Mapping (Pass II) [directories]
      DUMP: Estimated 2431310 blocks (1187.16MB).
      DUMP: Dumping (Pass III) [directories]
      DUMP: Dumping (Pass IV) [regular files]
    write: No space left on device
    329264+0 records in
    20579+0 records out
      DUMP: Broken pipe
      DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.

    I get similar for ibs=32k obs=32k, and no ibs/obs specifiers to dd.

    I'm confused!
