    Show an example of this, please, with error messages. The
    result you describe doesn't make any sense (a new
    directory is empty). What are these "items"?

    mkdir :-)

    (Don't try to change mnttab! This is managed by the
    system, it's not a "normal" file.)

    Show us an entry you tried to add to vfstab, the command
    you subsequently used to attempt the mount and any and all
    error messages.

    Elaborating on the backup process you're trying to
    implement may also turn out to be useful; someone might be
    able to suggest an improved approach.

    Hi Ralph,

    you mentioned that you have several hard drives on this system. Are
    they new or do they already have data on them? Also, where are you
    running the mkdir command? If these hd's are already mounted are you
    cd'ing into them and running the mkdir command? because mkdir /dir
    will try to create the directory in the top level or root directory as
    appose to the other hd's. I would cd to the directory I wanted to
    create a new directory in and run mkdir dirname (no slash)...

    just my thoughts...

    After rereading your post, you want to add these new directorys under
    the /usr directory, correct? if so, cd /usr, mkdir usr3 usr4 usr5 or
    if you don't want to cd into /usr you can do it from the top level
    directory like mkdir /usr/usr3
    and so on. then you will need to add it to /etc/vfstab as well as
    /etc/dfs/dfstab if you want it to be exportable.
