Provide the following values in each the /etc/vfstab fields:
Device to mount – The name of the file system to be mounted. This value must be the same as the file system's Family Set name that is specified in the mcf file.
Device to check The value must be a dash character (-), which indicates that there are no options. This character prevents the Oracle Solaris system from performing an fsck process on the file system. For more information about this process, see the fsck(1M) man page.
Mount point – For example, /samfs1.
File system type – This value must be samfs.
fsck pass – This value must be a dash character (-), which indicates that there are no options.
Mount at boot
yes indicates that the Sun Storage Archive Manager file system is to be mounted automatically at boot time.
no indicates that you do not want to mount the file system automatically
For information about the format of these entries, see Sun QFS and Sun Storage Archive Manager 5.3 Reference Manual.
Mount parameters. Specify mount parameters in the following ways:
Use the mount command to specify comma-separated parameters. Mount options specified here override those specified in the /etc/vfstab and samfs.cmd files.
Edit the /etc/vfstab file. Mount options specified here override those specified in the samfs.cmd file.
Edit the samfs.cmd file.
For a list of available mount options, see Sun QFS and Sun Storage Archive Manager 5.3 Reference Manual.
When you use SAM-QFS Manager to create a file system, a default /etc/vfstab file is created. However, mount options specified in SAM-QFS Manager are written to the samfs.cmd file rather than to the /etc/vfstab file. For more information, see Manually Creating the Master Configuration File.
The commands in this procedure assume that /samfs1 is the mount point of the samfs1 file system.
The following example shows header fields and entries for a local file system.
#DEVICE DEVICE MOUNT FS FSCK MOUNT MOUNT #TO MOUNT TO FSCK POINT TYPE PASS AT BOOT PARAMETERS # samfs1 - /samfs1 samfs - yes high=80,low=60
# mkdir /samfs1
If you specify non-default mount options when creating a file system in SAM-QFS Manager, the samfs.cmd file is created or updated with those mount options.
The File Systems Summary page appears.
The Edit Mount Options page appears.
For more information about the fields on the Edit Mount Options page, see the File System Manager online help.
The new mount options are written to the samfs.cmd file.
Use a text editor to create the /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/samfs.cmd file.
Create lines in the /etc/opt/SUNWsamfs/samfs.cmd file to control mounting, performance features, or other aspects of file system management.
