I have an Alpha ES40 booted with 5.1A tru64 unix. I need to mount a disk /dev/disk/disk5c. What is the mount procedure on this OS?
Can anybody help me out ?

Re: mount a disk on a tru64 unix machine

Hi,

it depends on. Does it contain a file system?
advfs domains are mounted with
mount domainname#fsetname /mountpoint
ufs file system with
mount /dev/disk/disk5c /mountpoint

greetings,

Re: mount a disk on a tru64 unix machine

If the 'disklabel dsk5c' command shows that its a 4.2 BSD (UFS), you can directly mount it (as mentioned in the earlier update). For AdvFS disk, you need to determine the domain (by looking at /etc/fdmns/ entries) and by knowing the filesets that exist in the AdvFS domain (by using 'showfsets ')
