Finding What Device partition Is Using

I'm trying to figure out how to find what devices our partitions are using. In Linux we can get this info from the Filesystem column using df (/home is on /dev/sda2, for example):

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 1.9G 274M 1.6G 15% /
/dev/sda1 99M 9.5M 85M 11% /boot
tmpfs 501M 0 501M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda2 113G 32G 75G 30% /home
/dev/sda9 965M 18M 898M 2% /tmp
/dev/sda5 12G 2.6G 8.3G 24% /usr
/dev/sda3 12G 6.3G 4.6G 59% /usr/local
/dev/sda6 4.8G 301M 4.2G 7% /var

I haven't figured out how to find this info in Tru64, though. Can anyone tell me how/where this can be found?

Re: Finding What Device partition Is Using

I assume your disks are using the AdvFS file system. To find the partitions you can:

ls -l /etc/fdmns/*

There are 10 kinds of people, one that understands binary and one that doesn't.

if you are using ADVFS then the last command posted is good or use
showfdmn -k "domain"
If it is not ADVFS the it should be in /etc/fstab where file systems are that are mounted upon startup.

if you have LSM involved
#voldisk list
#volprint -Ahqt
can help to understand your configuration
