Re: Could not mount home directory- boot anyway (Yes/No)”

I would first boot into single user and check fstab where the home dir is and if it exists. Is it a network drive by chance?


Hope this helps!

Re: Could not mount home directory- boot anyway (Yes/No)”

Hello,

 

I boot the machine into run-level 3 and checked /etc/fstab.

The file looks ok and all mount point are mounted (mount -v).

 

Still the problem occures.

I attached the following output commands

 

# mount –v > erez4_0810

# bdf >> erez4_0810

# ls –l >> erez4_0810

# ls –l | grep ^d >> erez4_0810

# cat /etc/fstab >> erez4_0810

 

Please advice.

Now I would check the /etc/passwd settings for home directories and inspect /etc/rc.log for more information.


Hope this helps!

Re: Could not mount home directory- boot anyway (Yes/No)”

Hello,

 

/etc/passwd looks fine but rc.log has some "strange" lines.

I attached the file.  

 

Please pay attention for the NFS for /scc mount point on rc.log file:

 

“exportfs error: /: sub-directory (/scc) already exported”

           

And also this

 

mountall: cannot mount /dev/vg01/lvol1

mountall: diagnostics from mount

vxfs mount: Cannot open /dev/vg01/lvol1: No such device or addres

I would check what mount point points to /dev/vg01/lvol1.

Hope this helps!

I don't see anything in bdf nor mount output.  But I don't seem to see any output from /etc/fstab??

Re: Could not mount home directory- boot anyway (Yes/No)”

Hello,

 

I perform “mount –a” did not mount the /scc volume.

 

Error message displayed is as below:

 

“vxfs volume cannot open /dev/vg01/lvol1: No such device or address.”

“Volume group not activated: cannot display volume group /dev/vg01”.

 

I attached /etc/fstab.

You will see that the mount point for /scc is the problematic vg01.

 

Will it be a good solution to reactivate vg01 and establish the NFS mount again?

Do --

 

ll /dev/vg01/lvol1

vgdislay -v vg01

if you see lv name in vgdiaplay -v output, then lvdisplay /dev/vg01/lvol1

 

Is this a cluster environment?
