This document provides examples of copying
filesystem/dir/files to a remote system using various backup
commands. Unlike rcp and ftp commands, backups will retain
time stamps, which are sometimes needed in restoration of the exact files to a
database. This information applies to AIX 5.3 and 6.1.
NOTE: rsh must be set up to run the commands in the following
tar -cvf- ./files | rsh -l \
"cd /target _dir;tar -xvf-"
pax and backup commands not limited to 1gig file size as is tar.
pax -wvf- ./files | rsh -l \
"cd /target_dir;pax -rvf-"
find ./tmp -print | backup -ivpqf- | rsh target_machine> -l
root "cd /tmp/;restore -xvqf-"
