Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

/dev/vol/rootdg/vol-dsk0g cannot be opened


/dev/vol/rootdg/vol-dsk0g cannot be opened

The Pb is that the system crash when booting, even if we try from mirrored disk then we get the same error for both dka0 & dka100 " /dev/vol/rootdg/vol-dsk0g is an invalid device or cannot be opened" .
The os is tru64 V5.1B
The systm is an Alphaserver DS 15.

Any help would be appreciate .

Re: /dev/vol/rootdg/vol-dsk0g cannot be opened

Sorry for late reply.
Guess you allready fixed the problem.
If not then:
1. Can you boot to single user mode?
2. post output of:
# cat /etc/volboot
# volprint rootdg
# disklabel -r dsk0
You may have faulty disk.
