NAME

       amsuntar - Amanda Application to interface with native tar utility available on solaris
       platforms

DESCRIPTION

       Amsuntar is an Amanda Application API script. It should not be run by users directly. It
       uses Solaris bundled tar utility to backup and restore data. Currenty ACLs from ZFS file
       system can only be backed up using the solaris supplied tar utility.

       The diskdevice in the disklist (DLE) must be the directory to backup.

       Solaris 10 supports Role Based Access Control(RBAC) which is enabled by default. To run
       backup operations using sun tar utility by under privileged user like backup, backup user
       need to have proper roles and profiles, specially "Media Backup" profile/role. This can be
       done using 'usermod -P "Media Backup" backup' command.

PROPERTIES

       This section lists the properties that control amsuntar's functionality. See amanda-
       applications(7) for information on application properties and how they are configured.

       BLOCK-SIZE

           Optional tar read or write block size.  The default is 256.

       DIRECTORY

           If set, suntar will backup from that directory instead of the diskdevice set by the
           DLE. On restore, the data is restore in that directory instead of the current working
           directory.

       EXTENDED-ATTRIBUTES

           Include extended attributes in archive.  The default is YES.

       EXTENDED-HEADERS

           Write tar file with extended headers. With this optiion the modification time is
           maintained with a  granularity of microseconds,Long file names and file sizes greater
           than 8GB can be archived. The default is YES.

       SUNTAR-PATH

           The path to the suntar binary. The default is set when Amanda is built.

       LANG

           Default LANG is "C". suntar require an UTF-8 LANG if you have UTF-8 filename and it is
           configured for extended headers. A good value can be "en_US.UTF-8" if that locale is
           installed on your machine.

       NORMAL
           List all regex (Perl Regular Expression syntax) that are normal output from sun tar.
           These output are in the "FAILED DUMP DETAILS" section of the email report if the dump
           result is STRANGE or FAILED. Default values:

           is not a file. Not dumped\$
           same as archive file\$

           To treat one of these default patterns differently, specify it explicitly in a
           different property.

       IGNORE
           List all regex (Perl Regular Expression syntax) that amanda ignore. These output are
           never in the email report.

       STRANGE
           List all regex (Perl Regular Expression syntax) that are strange output from sun tar.
           The result of the dump is STRANGE if sun tar produce a strange output. These output
           are in the "FAILED DUMP DETAILS" section of the email report. Default values:

           : invalid character in UTF-8 conversion of
           : UTF-8 conversion failed.\$

           To treat one of these default patterns differently, specify it explicitly in a
           different property.

       ERROR
           List all regex (perl Regular Expression syntax) that are error output from sun tar.
           All sun tar output that doesn't match a normal, ignore or strange regex are error by
           default. The result of the dump is FAILED if sun tar produce an error output. These
           output are in the "FAILED DUMP DETAILS" section of the email report. Default values:

           : Permission denied\$

           To treat one of these default patterns differently, specify it explicitly in a
           different property.
