Dump from old harddisk to new Harddisk

After i dumped my old harddisk (rz1) to a new harddisk (rz0) by putting the two harddisks on the scsi cable and changing the address of the new harddisk, i have tried to boot the new harddisk but it could not be booted becuase he could not mount the partitions on the the new harddisk with now rz1 in the fstab file, and puts me in a sigle user mode, is the problem in the fstab, i could not change it using vi in a single user mode.what should i do ?

Re: Dump from old harddisk to new Harddisk

Hello
Can you post OS version and fstype.
Anyway, try this:
1. Boot the system from CD and choose unix shell
2. Do:
# TERM=vt100 ; export TERM
# EDITOR=/usr/bin/vi ; export EDITOR
3. Mount file system.
Example:
# cd /dev
# ./MAKEDEV rz0*
# mount /dev/rz0a /mnt
4. Edit fstab
# vi /mnt/etc/fstab

In vino veritas, in VMS cluster
