Re: vxfs mount: disk image is incompatible with this system

Shalom,

The version of vertias(vxfx) jfs file system on the source file system is by default a higher version number than the one on 11.11

If possible upgrade vxfs on the 11.11 system to a compatible level as the 11.31 system.

This may or may not be possible.

You may also be able to export the file system in a compatible mode. See the man page for the command you used to do the export.

Hi,

LVM version on 11i V1 and V3 is different.

I am doubtful. It is not going to work unless the VG which you exported is lower version and importing on higher version or both are same version.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Hi :

I don't believe there is any version layout downgrade option.
