Re: H.D.D and advfs

I think you should be able to do this by:
1) After the disk is recognized on the new system (say as dsk2), create the directory /etc/fdmns/filedomain1
2) Inside that directory create a link using ln -s /dev/disk/
ex: # ln -s /dev/disk/dsk2c dsk2c

At this point, I think you should be able to mount filedomain1#fs1 on /test2 using the 'mount' command.

[Note that I haven't really tried this myself...]

Just found this manual: http://h30097.www3.hp.com/docs/base_doc/DOCUMENTATION/V51B_HTML/ARH96DTE/CHPTRTRB.HTM

Section 6.3.6 Moving an AdvFS Disk to Another Machine ;essentially tells the same thing, officially!
