HP-UX ignite-ux

I have an error when trying to make a recovery tape with the IGNITE-UX
the error is related with the filesystem of /,
The type divice file used according to the bdf and the one shown in /etc/fstab is different
I verify some things in this respect:
Filesystem used in the /etc/fstab
/dev/vg00/lvol3 / vxfs delaylog 0 1
Root Filesystem reported as the command bdf
/dev/root 86016 28018 54432 34% /
I need to force to the operating system to use the divice file indicated in /etc/fstab

Re: HP-UX ignite-ux


For starters this needs to be corrected before
you can cut an ignite tape. Suggest you look at
the following information on how it is fixed.



This second document probably will fix it.

The best way to cut an ignite tape is the following
# /opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg00 -I -v -a /dev/rmt/0mn

Anyone for a Mutiny ?

Re: HP-UX ignite-ux

To resolve, remove the mnttab file and recreate it.

# rm /etc/mnttab
# mount -v

If you don't want to remove it and recreate, then vi it. change /dev/root to /dev/vg00/lvol3 and verify it's right with bdf.

Hope this helps
