Chapter 18

Creating and Mounting File Systems (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to create and mount ZFS, temporary (TMPFS), and loopback (LOFS) file systems. Because TMPFS and LOFS are virtual file systems, you actually “access” them by mounting them. In addition, creating and mounting a legacy UFS file system is also covered.

This is a list of the step-by-step instructions in this chapter.
