Chapter 19

Creating ZFS, UFS, TMPFS, and LOFS File Systems (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to create ZFS, UFS, temporary (TMPFS), and loopback (LOFS) file systems. Because TMPFS and LOFS are virtual file systems, you actually “access” them by mounting them.

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

Note - For instructions on how to create UFS and DOS file systems on removable media, see Chapter 1, Managing Removable Media (Overview).
