Do this to ensure that global devices are not served from this node while you perform this procedure. For instructions, see How to Boot a Node in Noncluster Mode.
Is at least 512 MByte in size
Uses the UFS file system
# /usr/sbin/clinfo -n node- ID
blockdevice rawdevice /global/.devices/node@nodeID ufs 2 no global
For example, if the partition that you choose to use is /dev/did/rdsk/d5s3, the new entry to add to the /etc/vfstab file would then be as follows: /dev/did/dsk/d5s3 /dev/did/rdsk/d5s3 /global/.devices/node@3 ufs 2 no global
# lofiadm -d /.globaldevices
# rm /.globaldevices
# svcadm disable globaldevices# svcadm disable scmountdev # svcadm enable scmountdev # svcadm enable globaldevices
The partition is now mounted as the global-devices namespace file system.
# /usr/cluster/bin/cldevice populate
# ps -ef | grep cldevice populate
The global-devices namespace now resides on the dedicated partition.
