iNode number, how does it change?
I'm learning Solaris. I have this question.
If i use ufsdump to backup my file system to tape. Later, I use ufsrestore command to extract whole content the content of file system onto another file system. Does the inode number change?
It will get new number belong to new file system, independent of inode recorded to tape and old file system. Or the inodes are allocated such that the inode numbers after the restore are identical to the inode numbers recorded on tape, effectively overwriting inodes that had been allocated before the restore.
Please help me to clear this process.
