Re: Problem restoring raw LSM volume to a raw disk partition

Hi,

the first 16 blocks of a disk are reserved for internal use and can not be written to. You will have to skip them like
dd if=/dev/zero of==/dev/rdisk/dsk100a oseek=16
Was partition a the original partition? You may want to use a partition which does not start at offset 0.

greetings,

Michael

You can not use the first 16 block of the disk.
you may start at offset 1 instead of 0 to be able to write to the raw disk partitions.
