Caution - Any data on the disks is destroyed when you create a file system. Be sure that you specify the correct disk device name. If you specify the wrong device name, you might erase data that you did not intend to delete.
phys-schost# newfs raw-disk-device
The following table shows examples of names for the raw-disk-device argument. Note that naming conventions differ for each volume manager.
A mount point is required on each node, even if the cluster file system is not accessed on that node.
phys-schost# mkdir -p /global/device-group/mount-point/
Name of the directory that corresponds to the name of the device group that contains the device.
Name of the directory on which to mount the cluster file system.
For example, consider the scenario where phys-schost-1 mounts disk device d0 on /global/oracle/ and phys-schost-2 mounts disk device d1 on /global/oracle/logs/. With this configuration, phys-schost-2 can boot and mount /global/oracle/logs/ only after phys-schost-1 boots and mounts /global/oracle/.
phys-schost# cluster check -k vfstab
The configuration check utility verifies that the mount points exist. The utility also verifies that /etc/vfstab file entries are correct on all nodes of the cluster. If no errors occur, no output is returned.
For more information, see the cluster(8CL) man page.
phys-schost# mount /global/device-group/mountpoint/
The following example creates a UFS cluster file system on the Solaris Volume Manager volume /dev/md/oracle/rdsk/d1. An entry for the cluster file system is added to the vfstab file on each node. Then from one node the cluster check command is run. After configuration check processing is completed successfully, the cluster file system is mounted from one node and verified on all nodes.
