Changed /stand filesystem type

What if a user has changed the filesystem type of /stand to vxfs, can I still boot my HP-UX 11iv3 system? Will it be possible to change it back to hfs?

Re: Changed /stand filesystem type

In 11.23 only they are supporting to have /stand file system in hfs or vxfs. Before that it was having /stand in hfs only.

below thread for more information
real reason is ISL and EFI.

Re: Changed /stand filesystem type

correct me if I'm wrong, but are you asking if it's pa-risc or ia-64? unfortunately it's still pa-risc

/stand in vxfs is standard since 11.23 on both.

Hope this helps!

Re: Changed /stand filesystem type

hey torsten,

i think this is not right. well it's only a test machine but I have another machine with /stand as hfs only. i think you can only use vxfs for /stand if you're using ia-64

Re: Changed /stand filesystem type

I believe, like Sasha, that /stand is required to be an HFS file system on PARisc because the boot loader requires this.

Only if the box is Itanium can /stand be vxfs.

Now the question about trying to turn a file system backwards.....mmmmm...I don't think so, but I may be mistaken. It is my understanding that moving a file system forward on version is a noway back. Unless of course you rebuild the box from recovery that is prior to changing the f/s.

Rgrds,
Rita
