mount unknown advfs disk to read

I installed tru64 unix 5.0 on a new scsi disk. Then I want to copy data files from the old scsi disk which I do not know the domain and fileset. I found that I cannot use addvol command because it will erase the data.

I found a thread in this forum on this topic http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/ forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=962097

but it requires that I should know fileset of old hard disk.

What should I do if I do not know the old fileset to mount?

Thanks in advanve.

Hi,

mkdir /etc/fdmns/old
cd /etc/fdmns/old
ln -s /dev/disk/"oldpartition"
showfsets -b old

greetings,

Re: mount unknown advfs disk to read


A domain is basically just a softlink in a special directory to a decive.

You can hand-craft what mkfdmn would have done:

#mkdir /etc/fdmns/test
#ln -s /dev/disk/old-disk /etc/fdmns/test
#showfdmn test

This should list the volume(s) and/or you can use showfests

for each volume/fileset create a mountpount and mount it:

mkdir /old
mount test#fset1 -o r /old (check spelling)

hth,
Hein.

Re: mount unknown advfs disk to read

ooops, duplicate reply. Hate when that happens!


fyi, Since I do not have access to a Tru64 system just now, I went to double-check the showfdmn online.
Going there I stumbled into the numa_intro document and decided to re-reply there first before finishing the prior reply here.
