Snap cloning

Hi All

Next newbie question.

The eva has the capability of doing snapcloning.

Once the snap cloning is done on the eva i am presented with my new disk eg dsk 80c.

how do i get this mounted.
My understanding is that if i do the mkfdmn and mkfset then all the data will be lost.

Re: Snap cloning

That is part of the problem solved. However

when miounting the disk that is cloned is still present and with its fset name.

this causes an io error.

if i do a showfsets i get this following error E_DOMAIN_ALREADY_EXISTS

Re: Snap cloning

Wayne,

I believe you have to use the '-o dual' option.

Re: Snap cloning

Wayne,

I should have mentioned that's a mount option. So, the mount command for the newly created disk should look someting like:

# mount -t advfs -o dual #

Replace , , with the appropriate names.
