Hi,
Anyone knows how I can create vxfs filesystem with 32kb blocksize? I'm getting error saying maximum allowed is 8192.

Re: how to create vxfs filesystem with 32kb blocksize

You can create it with newfs - http://docs.hp.com/en/B3921-90010/newfs_vxfs.1M.html


-b block_size
File system block size in bytes. The default value is 1024 bytes.



Maybe there are some limitations, based on VxFS version.

Hi,
The default block size is 8K, but this may be modified during file system creation via the â b option on newfs.

To create an HFS with a block size of 32 Kbytes, use the following.
newfs -F hfs -b 32768 /dev/vg03/rlvol5

In the Release Notes maximum specified blocksize is 8k - http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-1832/5991-1832.pdf

Thanks guys, so I won't push for the 32kb block size anymore if it is not supported.
cheers!
