Creating mount directories for HP-UX

Open-Systems Host Attachment Guide

Part Number

After you create the file systems and set the device parameters, create the mount directory for each volume. Choose a unique name for each mount directory that identifies the logical volume.

  1. Use the mkdir command to create the mount directory with the new mount directory name as the argument.
    # mkdir /VSP-LU00                                        
  2. Use the ls -x command to verify the new mount directory.
    # ls –x                                                   
    VSP-LU00    bin     dev       device    etc       export
    floppy      home    hstsboof  kadb      kernel    lib
    Tip: If you need to delete a mount directory, use the rmdir command.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each new device on the storage system.
