ext3

How do I create an ext3 filesystem? I have tried this but does not worked :

mkfs -F ext3 -m 1 -v /dev/vg00/rlvol15

and get that error:

# mkfs -F ext3 -m 1 -v /dev/vg00/rlvol15
mkfs: invalid argument to "-F FStype" option
mkfs: ext3 is not a valid file system type
usage: mkfs [-F FStype] [-V] [-o specific_options] special [operands]
mkfs [-F FStype] [-V] [-m] special

Start on a GNU/Linux system which knows what
an "ext3" file system is?

man mkfs

Re: ext3

For HP-UX try with vxfs (or older hfs).

Re: ext3

Tks for quick reponse. I have look on the web to find a way to use acl and found that ext3 was able to deal with acl option but not vxfs.

Re: ext3

on hpux (at least from 11.0), JFS was able to deal with ACLs.

as noted, ext3 is a linux-thingy....

"man" acl or setacl or getacl for more.

Re: ext3

Just test it on your existing file systems - http://docs.hp.com/en/B9106-90007/getacl.1.html

ACLs are supported since jfs 3.3 (11.0) i think.

Re: ext3

Ok, but the reason why I am talking about acl is that I found that I need to mount the filesystem using acl option so I can manage Samba shared permissions using Windows properties security tab...other way I can't.

Sometimes it saves time to start by
explaining the actual problem to be solved,
rather than asking how to implement some
particular sub-ideal (or impossible) solution
to that problem.

It's also possible that your hardware
architecture (PA-RISC, IA64), OS version,
and Samba version would be interesting data.
