[OpenAFS] RE: vos create failure on attached drive array ?
Wed, 10 Aug 2005 12:01:03 -0400
This is running Veritas. I've seen references to needing
to run a NAMEI version of the AFS server (whatever that is).
I suppose I could try to build AFS from source unless someone
already has suitable Solaris 8 64- or 32-bit binaries.

Subject: vos create failure on attached drive array ?
I'm having trouble with "vos create" on a fiber attached
storage unit. I believe it's an EMC something-or-other,
but I'm not sure.
I was just given device labels.
I set up a test cell a few months ago with native disks..
bash-2.03# ./vos create <server> /vicepa root.afs -cell <cell> -noauth
Failed to create the volume root.afs 536870930
: I/O error
Error in vos create command.
: I/O error
Looks like it tries twice, so I get this in VolserLog:
bash-2.03# more VolserLog
