I need some info about backups. I am working on a customer site, and
have implemented both exports and hot backups. Both jobs copy to a
separate mount point, and a job scripted by another individual then
moves the files to tape.

Here's the problem - he's using a dd command, primarily because it
provides a succinct output he can email to non-technicals. The file
system is built on a 12 disk A1000 array. We've provided him with a
ufsdump script, but he's doesn't want to use it. Can the system be
recovered from this tape? Has anyone ever relied on a dd for a daily
backup method? The system is Oracle 9i on Solaris 8.
