Restore disk configuration

I have a server running Tru64 5.1a. The server has three disks. One disk has the O/S (/, /usr) and the other two have a single ADVFS domain on each.
The O/S disk died and has been replaced and the O/S re-installed.
How can I make my other two disks available to the O/S without destroying the data on them?

Re: Restore disk configuration

First, identify the second and third disk:

hwmgr v d

Then if you had only one domain, then you should be using the c partition. So you can just create the directory and respective links.

For example, if your second and third disk are dsk2c and dsk3c you should:

cd /etc/fdmns
mkdir domain1
cd domain1
ln -s /dev/disk/dsk2c
showfsets domain1
mount domain1#fsetname /mount_point1
cd ..
mkdir domain2
cd domain2
ln -s /dev/disk/dsk3c
showfsets domain2
mount domain2#fsetname /mount_point2

Replace domain1 and domain2 for your old domain names.
