NFS mounting etc

Hello,

Other than NFS and CDROM/DVD mounting i do not know scenarios for mounting a file system ?

Are there some other situation where mounting required ?

Thanks,
Shiv

Re: NFS mounting etc

You also mount all of the filesystems in /etc/fstab but typically this is done for you during the boot process.

Re: NFS mounting etc

Hi Shiv,

Even I have not heard mounting anything apart from NFS and CDDROM, so I will keep an eye on your thread ;)

As far as I know;
-USB DVD drives in 11.31 can be mounted.
-Pen drives cannot be mounted, to my knowledge.

Regds,
R.K.

Re: NFS mounting etc

CIFS Client file systems are mounted, as are EVFS volumes.

Re: NFS mounting etc

Hi,

when booting into single user mode you have to mount everything after lvol3 (ie. '/').

Re: NFS mounting etc

Hi:

In ServiceGuard environments the filesystems (and volume groups containing them) are mounted (after activating the volume group) in the package control scripts associated with ServiceGuard.

Re: NFS mounting etc

hi

a filesystem swap ... when you do not have a Device to use an an additional swap (used to happen in earlier days .. now with storages and high capacity disks, raw dwap devices are easliy available) that is like say you have a filesystem (1024 MB)mounted as /test for /dev/vg01/lvol5. you had plans for using this for filesystem swap apart from storing some non-critical data.
#lvcreate -L 1024 -n lvol5 /dev/vg01


create a filesystem on this reserving the last 200 MB of the filesystem to be used as swap
#newfs -F vxfs -b 1024 -o largefiles -R 200 /dev/vg01/lvol5

this reserves 200 MB of space at the end of filesystem to be used as swap (File-System Swap)
then add the following lines to the /etc/fstab

/dev/vg01/lvol5 /test vxfs defaults 0 0
... /test swapfs lim=200 0 0


the first entry shall mount the filesys as normal VxFS filesystem.

the second entry shall be using the max Lim of 200 MB at the end of filesystem /test as swap space.

in swpafs the Filesystem swapping takes place at a directory that gets automatically created within /test/paging.


Please refer to man pages of newfs(1M) for the -R option.


regards

Re: NFS mounting etc

hi for the above said example of filesystem swap
... /test swapfs lim=200 0 0

actually reads

... /test swapfs lim=200M 0 0



sorry for the typo


regards

Re: NFS mounting etc

Hi Robert,

Would you please like to explain "Mounting iso files" ? It is not clear to me.

Thanks,

>Would you please like to explain "Mounting iso files"?

ISO files (*.iso on windows) are images of CD/DVDs. If you can mount them, you can treat them as if they were the CD/DVD.
Here are a bunch of threads about how to do this:
