Re: Minor Number

This looks to be a HP-UX box and not a linux box. Your request is a little confusing, but here you go:

# pvcreate /dev/rdsk/c#t#d#j
# mkdir /dev/vgir0
# mknod /dev/vgir0/group c 64 0x030000
# vgcreate /dev/vgir0 /dev/rdsk/c#t#d#j
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"
