Creating and verifying the mount directories for Solaris

Open-Systems Host Attachment Guide

Part Number

After you have created the file systems, you can create and verify the mount directories for the new SCSI disk devices. Each logical partition requires a unique mount directory, and the mount directory name should identify the logical volume and the partition.

  1. Go to the root directory, and display the current directory.
    # cd                                                        
    # pwd                                                        
  2. Use the mkdir command to create the mount directory. Choose a name for the mount directory that identifies both the logical volume and the partition. For example, to create a mount directory named VSP_LU00, enter: mkdir /VSP_LU00
    # mkdir /VSP_LU00                                           
    Tip: If you need to delete a mount directory, use the rmdir command (for example, rmdir /VSP_LU00).
  3. Use the ls -x command to verify the new mount directory.
    # ls –x                 
    VSP_LU00  bin    dev      device    etc      export correctly
    floppy     home   hstsboof kadb      kernel   lib
  4. Repeat steps 2 to 4 for each logical partition on each new SCSI disk
