mount: 0506-322 Cannot determine log device to use for /dev/fslv

# mount /dev/fslv00 /test
mount: 0506-322 Cannot determine log device to use for /dev/fslv00 (/test).

Solution :

Just create another logical volume in datavg vg with a size of one (1) PP.

# mklv -t jfs2log -y <yournewloglv>datavg vg 1

# logform /dev/<yournewloglv>

Any filesystem that is created in datavg vg after this step will automatically use it.

Any filesystem that has been there before can be made using your new loglv with

# chfs -a log=<yournewloglv> <filesystemname>

If you create your loglv make sure to place it on the edge (-e) of your disk.
These are rather basic tasks. If you feel uncomfortable accomplishing them on the commandline you might want to use SMIT. Works fine.

eg.

Edit /etc/filesystems to add /dev/fslv00 as a new filesystem:

/test:
dev = /dev/fslv00
vfs = jfs
log = /dev/"jfs_log_name"
mount = true
options = rw
account = false

Run fsck against /dev/fslv00 , and try mounting it again.
