BlankHello All,

I m a Newbie to Solaris, I need to backup the files with tar and gzip , this
is what i used ;

tar -cvf ns1_backup.tar.gz /etc/named.conf /usr/dns

The file size goes to 22MB is this Normal ???  We use solaris as our DNS
server mainly and its has got huge amount of Domains but will the file size
go 22Mb, I dunno if i m putting it right in words but what i want is did it
gzip'd or only tarrred with above option ????

Thanks in Advance
