    Obviously, this is a home-grown script to backup your filesystem. Without knowing what this script does, how do you expect us to debug it?

    I suggest you start reading http://download-west.oracle.com/docs...a96519/toc.htm to understand why taking a straight dump of the disks is not advisable.
