Re: make a file system

Well, first you'd want to roughly understand how your file systems are organized, and how your disks are organized

- Is there a Logical Volume Manager involved?
- UFS / AdvFS ?
- Direct connect storage, or controller attached virtual.

A few basic steps could be;

run syscheck!


file /dev/rr*a ---> candidate disks.

df ---> see what's in use, which domain has room for more fsets (AdvFS)

ls /etc/fdmns/*/* ---> see what's in use AdvFS

cat /etc/fstab ---> see what's in use (UFS)

if it is controller based storage (HSZ?) then you'll have to talk to the controller to see whether all space is handed out already or not.

For further help, please describe your environment best you can.

Hope this helps some,
