Import advfs domain

hello Gurus,
i have a disk, used to create a domain and fileset on it. data is also on it.
i want to move the drive to another system because the OS crashed. can i still see the data on it when i move it to another system? it was created with advfs under try64 5.1B.
please advice.

Re: Import advfs domain


I tend to just make the directory for the disk to be 'import' under /etc/fdms (can be a different name from original); add teh softlink to the device; create or find a mountpoint for the fileset(s) in the new domain, and mount those.

Check the man page for advscan and showfsets

google for some or all of: advfs move advscan disk

And you'll find plenty prior discussions like:

Good luck,

Re: Import advfs domain

Yes, you can see it if your operating system version is the same or higher.

You must identify the disk partition that had the file system, for example, "c".

Create a directory in /etc/fdmns, for example:

mkdir /etc/fdmns/transported_domain

Link the device name and partition to that directory

ln -s /dev/disk/dskXc /etc/fdmns/transported_domain

Identify the fileset name:

showfsets transported_domains

Mount the file set:

mount transported_domain#fileset_name /mount_point

Thats all.
