Error: DUMP: You can't update the dumpdates file when dumping a subdirectory DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted

No headers

Error accurs when amdump is started against a Xen Client and using dump instead of tar in the dumptype:

The cause of this problem is that dump -u does not work correctly on Xen clients and therefore can't update /etc/dumpdates file. This cause admump to abort.

The solution is to use tar instead of dump when backing up Xen clients.
