Klaus,

I'd like to know more about backing up my Oracle database.  I recently lost
an 18GB drive on my SPARC E-450.  All I had were ufsdumps, and in order to
restore the database I had to restore 13 partitions.  It worked fine, but
was very time consuming.    The same scenario could occur on the Linux
instances as well.  Any suggestions?
