URGENT : How to create File Systems

Hi Everybody,

There are two attached files :

1.dipper__gethp_102105 :
contais the details of ( File System Information, LVM Information, Hardware Information, Kernal Information & Misc. Information)

2. File System Request:
Detals of file systems Which I need to create the file system
(Note: I will attach this file in next because we can attach here only one file)


All file systems in this request should be part of the same Volume Group. How can I create these file systems using the next available Volume Group number.



Please note the naming convention used for the various existing file systems. Note that the â /dev/vg71/orpbamp_data_dat02â naming of the Logical Volume somewhat matches the mount point.



/dev/vg71/orpbamp_data_dat02 25624576 24745405 824230 97% /PBAM/db/ORPBAMP/data/dat02



Also we need to make sure that all new Volume Groups are configured with â alternate linksâ and the fstab file is updated, before we release the file system for use to the users.

Please suggest me what should I do
Please look into it and do the needful,
Try 2 send me the step by step commands SOON.

Thanks in advance
Vipin

Re: URGENT : How to create File Systems

I would not count on getting a lot of detaied replies - you don't assign points. Points are how you say "thank you".

Have you read the manuals? There are descriptions of how to do this in the manuals.
No matter where you go, there you are.

Please see chapter 6:

Vipin - welcome to the forums.

Also have a read through:

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/helptips.do?#28

Basically, assigning points to answers makes it easier for others to determine which answer provided the best solution.
So, when one does a search of the ITRC Forums - someone who was assigned 3 points for their answer, their response tends to not be a satisfied solution - compared to one that is rated between 8-10.

Here's a link to your questions with unassigned points:

Re: URGENT : How to create File Systems

Hi,

First assign points to the earlier responses to you questions which are listed here.

Then post which disk devices you want the new vg to be created and the LVOL sizes ?

Re: URGENT : How to create File Systems

Hi,

The second attachment only tells about LUN no. but to create the VG disk device file is required. Find out the same and go ahead with this procedure.

pvcreate /dev/rdsk/cxtydz
pvcreate /dev/rdsk/cx1ty1dz1
mkdir /dev/vg72
mknod group c 64 ox??0000
vgcreate /dev/dsk/cxtydz cx1ty1dz1
vgextend /dev/vg72 /dev/dsk/cxatyadza /dev/dsk/cx1aty1adz1a xx xx xx xx xx xx
lvcreate -L 31000 /dev/vg72 -n dat01
lvcreate -L 11000 /dev/vg72 -n idx01
lvcreate -L 3500 /dev/vg72 -n rbs01
lvcreate -L 500 /dev/vg72 -n redoA
lvcreate -L 500 /dev/vg72 -n redoB
lvcreate -L 500 /dev/vg72 -n redoC
lvcreate -L 3500 /dev/vg72 -n tmp01
lvcreate -L 3000 /dev/vg72 -n archive
lvcreate -L 10000 /dev/vg72 -n backup
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rdat01
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/ridx01
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rrds01
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rredoA
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rredoB
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rredoC
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rarchive
newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg72/rbackup
mount /dev/vg72/dat01 /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/dat01
mount /dev/vg72/idx01 /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/idx01
mount /dev/vg72/rbs01 /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/dat01
mount /dev/vg72/redoA /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/redoA
mount /dev/vg72/redoB /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/redoB
mount /dev/vg72/redoC /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/redoC
mount /dev/vg72/tmp01 /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/tmp01
mount /dev/vg72/archive /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/archive
mount /dev/vg72/backup /ACBP/db/ORACBPD/data/backup

?? is the unique no. find the next available by "ll /dev/*/group" and replace cxtydz & cx1ty1dz1 with actual disk device files. Also while extending define all the alternate paths for these two disks on which you are creating the VG.

Also make entries to /etc/fstab accordingly.

Re: URGENT : How to create File Systems

You are really being completely unrealistic requesting such specific steps on what is potentially extremely dangerous. You seem to be completely unwilling to learn the basics steps for these tasks. Note that someone could intentionally (or much more likely inadvertantly) send you specific steps that could destroy tons of data and you might blindly execute those steps. I would never execute commands that I got from anyone without having a very good idea of exactly what each of those commands does.
It is your job to learn to do these tasks and the Forums are a great place to get hints but there does need to be some effort on your end towards learning.

I hope that all respondents will have the same view. This is said with your best interests in mind. The man pages and the documents cited will give you all the data you need. If would be appropriate to have someone check over your proposed commands but again, ultimately you are responsible for these commands so it behooves you to know what you are asking that stupid computer to do.

If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
