First, I have a normal backup routine that is incremental Monday thru Saturday

Second, I recently installed a new primary disk drive and used xfsdump /
xfsrestore (i.e. xfsdump -J - / | xfsrestore -J - /newroot) to duplicate my
old drive. This was done on Sunday after the full backup ran.
When my incremental (level 1) ran this morning, I got the following error
message for all of my partitions.
/sbin/xfsdump: using file dump (drive_simple) strategy
/sbin/xfsdump: version 2.2.21 (dump format 3.0) - Running single-threaded
/sbin/xfsdump: ERROR: cannot calculate incremental dump: online inventory not
/sbin/xfsdump: Dump Status: ERROR
Am I missing something? I would have assumed that xfsdump would have captured
the dump inventory and brought it across to the new partition.
xfsdump does not dump the inventory files, even if they are on the
filesystem being backed up. See the xfsdump man page for more info.
