Solaris: restore report warning 'ctar: will not extract'



To provide additional information about the Solaris ‘ctar: will not extract’ warning in the restore report.


Solaris maintains block device nodes for accessing hardware connected to the system. The following warning will be visible in the restore report when restoring block devices if the node already exists: 

ctar: will not extract because...File exists


This warning can be safely ignored. The warning will only be issued if the block device already has a node in place, and it does not affect the success of the restore. If the block device node has been removed, the Unitrends agent will attempt to recreate it.
