Right now I am watching a dump:

[root at admin ~] dump -b64 -5Lau /home
  DUMP: Connection to big.sibptus.tomsk.ru established.
  DUMP: Date of this level 5 dump: Sat Aug 18 14:02:16 2007
  DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: Sun Aug 12 11:10:56 2007
  DUMP: Dumping snapshot of /dev/ad0s2f (/home) to /dev/nsa0 on host big
  DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
  DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
  DUMP: estimated 3249348 tape blocks.

at the same moment:

[root at admin ~] snapinfo -v /home
/dev/ad0s2f mounted on /home
        no snapshots found
[root at admin ~] ll /home/.snap/
total 0
[root at admin ~]

Is this normal? Does it mean that dump is not really dumping a
snapshot though it says it is?
