We use Legato networker. I assume Networker 6 will not backup XFS
extended attributes as until now Linux hasn't really had them.
It is also a work in progress for acls on ext2. They also use extended
However IRIX is a supported OS for Networker. What I need is for some
one at SGI to lean on networker to port the XFS bits of the IRIX client
to Linux, I can then get the update through our usual software maintence
The source is out there and they know the on-disk format, which is a 100%
mirror of the Irix disk spec.
I assume under Irix , networker backs up the EAs.
Better ask them then to assume.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
