Re: Unable to mount FS - unrecognized vxfs version number.

Hi,

it seems like you have to upgrade vxfs.

From HP:
Multiple VxFS products are available on HPUX 11.00.
The VxFS product (JFS3.1) installed with 11.00 does not have version 4 filesystem capability. Later VxFS products (JFS3.3) include a version 4 filesystem.
Therefore, fstyp must be modified to identify VxFS version 4 filesystems.

You need the software or patches.

You can search here for patches about this (vxfs and JFS3.3):
