how to vxfs to hfs

we used vxfsconvert to convert hfs filesystem to vxfs, after conversion the Filesystem showing same size utilized in bdf command.

 

but when #cd /fs ; the directory is empty. is there a way we can see the contents after conversion of vxfs??

 

or could you please tell me how to revert back to hfs filesystem??

 

thanks.

Re: how to vxfs to hfs

I assume you unmounted the filesystem prior to the convert. Did you mount it again???

Hope this helps!

Re: how to vxfs to hfs

But did you mount it with new vxfs options or still with the old options from fstab?

 

Did you follow all the steps from the man page, including fsck?

 

...

Do a full backup on the file system before starting the
              conversion process.

 

do "man vxfsconvert" and compare.

 


Hope this helps!
