Sorry, this is probably a FAQ.
Are UFS filesystems written on x86 boxes compatible with those written
on SPARC, in terms of byte-orderingness etc? In particular, if I have
a disk with a filesystem on it written on an x86 box, would I be able
to read it on a SPARC box, both running Solaris 10? If not is there
As others said, no.
any easy way (such as dding it with some ordering conversion into a
large file, then using lofi to mount the file) which would let me mount
ufsdump piped into ufsrestore should handle the convertion.
Sorry, to be clearer, the ufsdump is run on an x86 box and
the ufsrestore on the sparc box, so you can't directly pipe
between them, although you could do it by piping across an
rsh/ssh network connection.
I say _should_ because this area has had bugs in the past
and I haven't tried it recently.
