NAME


volcopy - make an image copy of file system

SYNOPSIS


volcopy [-F FSType] [-V] [generic_options]
[-o FSType-specific_options] operands


DESCRIPTION


volcopy makes a literal copy of the file system. This command may not be
supported for all FSTypes.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-F FSType
Specify the FSType on which to operate. The
FSType should either be specified here or
be determinable from /etc/vfstab by
matching the operands with an entry in the
table. Otherwise, the default file system
type specified in /etc/default/fs will be
used.


-V
Echo the complete command line, but do not
execute the command. The command line is
generated by using the options and
arguments provided by the user and adding
to them information derived from
/etc/vfstab. This option should be used to
verify and validate the command line.


generic_options
Options that are commonly supported by most
FSType-specific command modules. The
following options are available:

-a
Require the operator to respond "yes"
or "no" instead of simply waiting ten
seconds before the copy is made.


-s
(Default) Invoke the DEL if wrong
verification sequence.


-o FSType-specific_options
Specify FSType-specific options in a comma
separated (without spaces) list of
suboptions and keyword-attribute pairs for
interpretation by the FSType-specific
module of the command.

operands
generally include the device and volume names and are file
system specific. A detailed description of the operands can
