Managing FileSystems

I have got 2 FileSystems visible when I use df -k command /u00 and /u01 of 5 GB and 10 GB respectively. Can you please let me know exact commands to execute for below:

1) Delete /u00
2) Modify /u01 from 10 GB size to 5 GB size
3) Create /u02 (new fs) of size 10 GB

Thank you!

Re: Managing FileSystems

How can anyone let you know the exact commands when you don't supply the exact data?

You don't bother to indicate if you are running whole disks, LVM, or VxVM. You don't bother to indicate if you have OnlineJFS and yet you want exact steps.

If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

I am sorry for providing incomplete info. I am not using any volume manager or veritas. They are the generic basis filesytems.

Re: Managing FileSystems

panchalp,

Do you have online JFS ?

1) Delete /u00
-> umount /u00
-> lvremove /dev/vgxx/lvolxx => refer to /u00

2) Modify /u01 from 10 GB size to 5 GB size
-> backup /u01 data
-> umount /01
-> lvreduce -L 5000 /dev/vgxx/lvolxx

3) Create /u02 (new fs) of size 10 GB
-> lvcreate -L 10000 /dev/vgxx/lvolxx
-> newfs /dev/vgxx/rlvolxx
-> mount /dev/vgxx/lvolxx /u02

WK
Problem never ends, you must know how to fix it

Re: Managing FileSystems

WK is right, only after lvreduce at point 2 add :
#mount /dev/vgXX/lvolXX /u01

Re: Managing FileSystems

Hi Panchalp,

given that you want a 5GB and a 10GB partition why not just reuse the ones you've got by unmounting the exiting filesystems and remounting them on the new mount points?

/u00 --> /u01
/u01 --> /u02

Don't forget to update the fstab.

Cheers,
Philip.

Since real disks don't come in 5GB and 10 GB sizes, I suspect you are using LVM. This can be verified by using the command:

bdf /u00 /u01 /u02

On the right will be the filesystem mountpoints and on the left will be the source disk. If you are using 'generic' disks then the source will start with /dev/dsk...

But if the left side shows something like /dev/vg01/.... then you are using logical volume manager (LVM). To be completely safe, backup any volume where you are making changes. Reducing a filesystem is almost always destructive.

Now the rest of the commands connot be accurately given because there is not enough information. Start by posting the following commands:

model
uname -r
bdf /u00 /u01 /u02
