rmvol: error [13] posting event: sys.unix.fs.advfs.fdmn.rmvol.unlock

Hi,

I have a 3-node cluster running Tru64 v5.1 and I had to fix a couple of AdvFS domains because I'm experiencing some performance issues. I ran the "sys_check -perf" and it recommended to run "addvol" & "rmvol" to fix some BMT issues with some of the filesystems, so I did that but when the rmvol finished I got this messages:

rmvol: Removing volume '/dev/disk/dsk42a' from domain 'mydom1'
rmvol: Removed volume '/dev/disk/dsk42a' from domain 'mydom1'
rmvol: error [13] posting event: sys.unix.fs.advfs.fdmn.rmvol.lock
rmvol: error [13] posting event: sys.unix.fs.advfs.fdmn.rmvol.unlock

My question is, what exactly that error means? I've been digging for some information about it but nothing came up with an answer. Do I need to run any other command utility on the FS?

Thanks in advance

Juan.

This is not an error. Basically, AdvFS locks the /etc/fdmns directory during the 'rmvol' process so that no other AdvFS admin commands try to tamper with the directory contents. After the rmvol operation is completed, the directory is unlocked.

I am not sure why you see "error[13]" in the event though. But, I think you need not worry about it.
