Re: dxadvfs can not find new disk

Right, first and foremost, what is the exact error message.

Is LSM at all involved? Does it 'own' the device and should you use an lsm volume for the domain?

Next, how about some critical context data.
The mkfdmn uses the special file /dev/disk/dsk27c
Can we 'see' that file: ls -l /dev/disk/dsk27c
Try: 'disklabel -r dsk27'
And: 'file /dev/disk/dsk27c'

mkfdmn should create /etc/fdmns/test
Try: 'ls -ld /etc/fdmns'
and: 'ls -l /etc/fdmns

This is relatively basic stuff.
So it is not going to be a bug, just a bad environment or understanding.

Good luck,
Hein.
