Error Message Incorrectly Shows File System Not Found In /etc/fstab

Am running HPUX 11.23.

Whenever I try to mount the file system
/dev/vg00/lvol10, I get the following:

# mount /dev/vg00/lvol10
mount: /dev/vg00/lvol10 was either ignored or not found in /etc/fstab
buffy.rsn.hp.com:/tmp
#

Also,

# cat /etc/fstab
# System /etc/fstab file. Static information about the file systems
# See fstab(4) and sam(1M) for further details on configuring devices.
/dev/vg00/lvol3 / vxfs delaylog 0 1
/dev/vg00/lvol1 /stand vxfs tranflush 0 1
/dev/vg00/lvol4 /tmp vxfs delaylog 0 2
/dev/vg00/lvol5 /home vxfs delaylog 0 2
/dev/vg00/lvol6 /opt vxfs delaylog 0 2

# /dev/vg02/lvol1 /copy vxfs delaylog 0 2
buffy.rsn.hp.com:/tmp
#

And also:

According to the bdf output, the file system in question, /dev/vg00/lvol10, is in fact mounted. The issue seems to be with the file
system's entry in /etc/fstab.

I first noticed this problem when I tried to install a patch on the server and was getting the following message:

NOTE: The command "/sbin/mount" exited with a status code of "1".
The following is the output from the command:
mount: /dev/vg00/lv0l10: No such file or directory
NOTE: End of command output. Non-zero exit status may or may not be a failure. Look for additional messages.
ERROR: Entry for filesystem "/dev/vg00/lv0l10" in "/etc/fstab" could not be mounted. If you do not want this file system mounted, comment it out of the "/etc/fstab" file, or set the "mount_all_filesystems" option to "false".
ERROR: Cannot continue the Analysis Phase until the previous errors are corrected.

So, after all of that, my two questions are this:

(1) Why am I showing the follwoing message when, in fact, bdf shows the file system to be mounted:

# mount /dev/vg00/lvol10
mount: /dev/vg00/lvol10 was either ignored or not found in /etc/fstab
buffy.rsn.hp.com:/tmp
#

(2) Will this condition more than likely affect /etc/fstab's ability to automount the file system at boot time?

Thank in advance to anyone who will bite on this one!

/dev/vg00/lv0l10 /OB2DBG vxfs delaylog 0 2

This is not the same as /dev/vg00/lvol10. Did you mistype it here (and repeatedly in your further output) or is it misspelled in fstab?

hi

by default swinstall requires all file system to be mounted regd based on installation.

to remove that option to swinstall cmd use -x option mount_all_filesystems=false or with gui u can use
option ---change option ---disable mount filesystem in /etc/fstab or /etc/checklist


for mounting mount lvname /mountpoint

Re: Error Message Incorrectly Shows File System Not Found In /etc/fstab

Don already found it, the fstab file contains

/dev/vg00/lv0l10

but it should be

/dev/vg00/lvol10

("0" instead of "o").

Hope this helps!

Thanks to all of you for replying!

Yes, (blushing) it was a misspelling on my part for the entry in /etc/fstab.

This problem was obviously of PEBKAC nature
(problem existed between keyboard and chair). Points have been assigned and thanks to all of you again for taking the time to point out what should have been so obvious.

Happy but humbled,
