file system won't mount

Hi guys / Gals, I did a reboot recently of server and have just noticed we are missing a file system - I tried a manual 'mount /orabackup' but it returns error
vxfs mount: mount option(s) incompatible with file system /dev/vg01/lvol25

Here is entry in fstab - anyone see anything strange ?

/dev/vg01/lvol25 /orabackup vxfs rw,suid,nolargefiles,delaylog,datainlog 0 2

Re: file system won't mount

Hi Davey,

The only thing crossing my mind is, orabackup and nolargefiles?

Are you sure you do not have >2GB files in /orabackup?

Try mounting the lvol on /mnt
# mount /dev/vg01/lvol25 /mnt

or post the output of
# fstyp -v /dev/vg01/lvol25

Re: file system won't mount

Hi Robert Jan,
Thanks very much for the pointer on that. Hmmm , strange , I did a

mount /dev/vg01/lvol25 /orabackup

and it came up grand.

There are actually files bigger than 2gb so that may explain things.
Thanks v much for help - points on the way
Dave :-)
