Hi Rariasn,
Thanks for your reply, but I don't understand why newfs -F hfs that happened to warning message, I have seen man page of newfs which can add -F hfs or vxfs.

Hi,

http://forums2.itg1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1278577441167+28353475&threadId=139524

Looking at the msg I now believe it's just warning that the last cylinder group is small & cannot be fully used - essentially saying that there are 256 sectors less than normally usable. I believe Tom is correct & the FS WAS created.

Yes

Re: lvcreate was found error message!

hi,
Basically we use hfs file system when topic comes about stand in a typical PA-RISK box.. so as per my dear friend told earlier that if you will use vxfs, then it will be accepted without any warning messages..i believe.

2nd thing if its getting done with warning messages then we need not to be worried unless it complited with error rathar.. warning messages... so we can ignore it.. but one thing i can sugggest that u may check the differece between hfs and vxfs... why we are using vxfs for normal logical volumes.. your doubt will be cleared upto some extend, i am sure...

so as its said earlier.. try vxfs.. it will be fine..
thanks
