Each filesystem whether it is POSIX compliant or not consists of extended attributes that will not work on another filesystem.  This will report an error in the restore showing what attribute cannot be restored.

In this particular situation a backup was taken from a file system type of VxFS and then a restore was attempted to a different file system type on the same client. However, the destination file system that was used for the restore was a ext3 or tmpfs file system type. Restore will not work because VxFS file system has extended attributes which are not available on ext3 or tmpfs file sytem.
