I am trying to set up backup operations for OpenAFS and I have a question about
the backup volumes.

The docs mention two ways to do backups, one is a simple clone which is done
at some interval to which the users are given read access to. The other is to
up a tape unit and use the backup utilites. The documentation seems to say that
the backup command itself handles all ofthe cloning etc, but does not say for
(if it does I am sorry but I just couldn't find a definite answer)

Could someone run through the basics of the proper way to backup afs volumes
to tape?
