Weird ADVFS problem

Hi,

System is a XP1000 running Tru64 5.1 (sorry, haven't got any later release in the moment).

Did the usual steps to create a file domain, but I get an error after entering:
# showfmdn temp_domain
...
showfdmn: unable to display volume info; domain not active.

Before I start to patch and upgrade (this is a less important system) probably someone can give me a hint where to look for more information about this problem.

What I did:
I have a partition /dev/disk/dsk0h I want to use for /tmp.
Made a
mkfdmn /dev/disk/dsk0h temp
mkfset temp fs1

After this I get the above listed error.

Any help greatly appreciated,

with kind regards

Andreas

Re: Weird ADVFS problem

Advfs is said to be active if and only if atleast one fileset is mounted.

In your case, you can use:
# mount temp#fs1 /tmp ;(for mounting onto /tmp)
Now, 'showfdmn' on the domain will work.

Andreas,

"showfsets" can be used on a domain that has none of its fsets mounted.

Both answers were helpful. The real reason was a typo in the directory name of the mount point. what a day.
Thanks alot for the help
