dd tool usage help
i am using dd tool to copy data from one linux machine to another linux machine.
in place of output file i am giving the second Linux machine ip adress and directory wher i wanted to copy data.but dd command is not identifying the second Linux machine path .
i have mounted the second Linux machine from first one and its successful.
we can see the same below from mount command
172.16.110.1:/E on /media/usbsdisk type nfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,hard,udp,lock,intr,wsize=8 192,rsize=8192,addr=172.16.110.1)
i am using the following command.
dd if=/home/uce_ins/tmp/records of=172.16.110.1:/E
here 172.16.110.1 is the second Llinux machine ip asddress and the E is the directory i wanted to copy data from first Llinux machine.
but dd tool is recognized the the second linux machine
i have observed the foolowing error message
dd if=/home/uce_ins/tmp/records of=172.16.110.1/E/
dd: opening `172.16.110.1/E/': No such file or directory
kindly give a suggestion how to copy data from one Linux machine to another linux machine using dd tool.it's very urgent.
with best: regards,
Hello mannam srinivas!
Pardon me if I dare suggest but since you were able to mount the second HD, maybe there is no need to put the IP address on the output file but put instead of=/dev/hdxxx.
I'm just making a guess. Good luck!nujinini
