FlashNet / WebNative

Unread postby uunix » Thu Aug 04, 2016 2:39 am

Has anybody had experience with this backup program?
I copied the self contained application /usr/FlashNet to an Octane with a tape drive in and the application ran fine, but I need some documentation on selecting/configuring the correct tape drive.

Thanks for the pointer Vishnu, typically sorted after half an hour of posting this. The tape devices /dev/tape failed, but /dev/scsi/sc0d310 worked fine.
Just need to figure out how it all works.

Also, anyone know about webNative?

I can't login, it seems not to use the inbuilt users stored in /etc/passwd (I think)?
