online jfs

I have a bl870c running hp-ux 11i v3 Base OE. I plan to install online jfs 5.1 on the server to enable me to extend my filesystems online. Does this have an effect on my existing filesystems? Can I convert my filesystems to VxFS without data loss?

Thanks!

Re: online jfs

Hi,

You can install the OnlineJFs through installation media. Or download it from DSPP.

Put the dvd in to drive and mount it and run the below command from sam you can select the OnlineJFS depot. But one think after installation it will ask for reboot.

Thanks,

but beware to leave /stand to be HFS :grin:

see man vxfsconvert

vxfsconvert - convert an unmounted file system to VxFS or upgrade a VxFS disk layout version

no, the JFS product doesn't require a reboot:

# swlist -l fileset -a is_reboot B3929CA B3929DA
# Initializing...
# Contacting target "hpsfeu6"...
#
# Target: hpsfeu6:/
#

# B3929CA
# B3929CA.OnlineJFS

# B3929DA

B3929DA.VRTSvxfs.VXFS-ENG-A-MAN false
B3929DA.VRTSvxfs.VXFS-KRN true

Re: online jfs

HI,

Normally it will ask for reboot beacuse while selecting the OnlineJFS package from DVD some network depot also be include. To avoide the reboot just deselect the network related patches and install. Remember one thing to copy the lisence too.

Please let me know if you need further assisstance.

I'm sure there is no hfs in a 11.31 system ;-))


...
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/stand", (/dev/vg00/rlvol1).
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/", (/dev/vg00/rlvol3).
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/home", (/dev/vg00/rlvol4).
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/opt", (/dev/vg00/rlvol5).
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/tmp", (/dev/vg00/rlvol6).
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/usr", (/dev/vg00/rlvol7).
* Making VxFS filesystem for "/var", (/dev/vg00/rlvol8).
...

Hope this helps!
