    Backup problem

    Here's the error I receive when running a backup.

    Performing backup of /home to /dev/nst0 ..

    DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Wed Jun 25 13:42:04 2003

    DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.

    I'm using Redhat 6.2. I'm backing up a 30Gb server with a 40Gb SCSI tape.

    Any idea what the problem might be?

    After DUMP aborted do you get any specific errors on the screen ?

    Check dmesg output and see if you find any errors ...
