    Doubt regarding dump based OSB backup

    Srikanth CG

      Hi All,

       

      Whenever I do a dump based backup, I can see the files are not backed up sequentially in fact they are backed up across volumes as parts.

       

      For example let's say I have a volume of size 100G and then a dataset(containing directories and files) 150G and when I backup this dataset it will occupy two volumes. So when I check the files or directories location in the volumes, parts of files/directories are present in both the volumes.

       

      for ex:

      Name:           file05
      Backup ID:      0
          Mode & protection:  -rw-r--r--

      Is there a way that I can make sure that the volumes are filled sequentially?
