I would like to know how to proceed in order to restore a dump from a backup headless server (remotely using ssh).
How am I supposed to proceed, should I first install the server (a FreeBSD Fresh install with spare partition) then restore the dump on an empty partition ?
Should the new empty partition be the exact same size as the dumped partition ?
Is there a tool that could allow me to restore remotely ?
Any advice or howto will be (very) welcome.
P.S. Happy new BSD year !!
Good help to found here
