I am considering using XFS as the base filesystem for our SAN as
it supports ACL's and will integrate well with samba to provide
fine grained control over file access for users.
What I need to know is where is the ACL information saved?
If I back up my filesystem onto tape using regular backup
software (veritas,tivoli, arkeia etc etc)
will the ACL information be restored when i restore the files from tape?
probably not. Amanda can be made to work with xfsdump.
Some of them are actually working on supporting it natively.
If not what's involved in preserving /restoring it?
All information greatly appreciated.
Please send replies to me directly anthony.hornby@xxxxxxxxxx and I'll
summarise to the list.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
