Compaq Tru64 UNIX: Setting up Standard File Systems

The following table shows the variables and their corresponding values.

Variables in Standard File Systems

Variable Description
<diskname> Full path of a disk, for example, /dev/rz11c
<rawdiskname> Full path of a raw disk, for example, /dev/rrz11c
<disktype> Disk type, for example, rz28
<mountpointname> Full path of a mount point, for example,
SAP DB: /sapdb/<SAPSID>/sapdata1
Informix: Not applicable
Oracle: /oracle/<SAPSID>/sapdata1

To set up a standard file system:

1. Ask the customer which disks are available and make sure that they do not belong to
one of the categories listed in the following table:

Avoidable Disk Categories

Disk Category How to Check
Mounted disks grep <diskname> /etc/fstab
Swapdevices swapon -s | grep <diskname>
Advanced FS cd /etc/fdmns; showfdmn * | grep <diskname>
Volumes within LSM (Logical Storage manager) volprint -Ath | grep <diskname>

2. Create disk label, if necessary:
disklabel -w -r <rawdiskname> <disktype>
3. Create empty file system:
newfs -m 0 <rawdiskname>

4. Create mount point:
mkdir <mountpointname>
5. Add line to /etc/fstab:
<diskname> <mountpointname> ufs
6. Mount file system:
mount <mountpointname>
