Partition problem - Sun Solaris

Hi, I have a solaris box running the following (uname -a) SunOS ora-wmac 5.6 Generic_105181-29 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60 I recently had to replace a disk and resize/moce some partitions about. Now on 2 of my partitions I get funny outcomes when I use ufsdump to backup the partitions. I have the following partitions on my disk2: c0t1d0s0 mounted on /orafiles c0t1d0s1 mounted on /logs. These seem to be ok in normal filesystem activity except when i use ufsdump. ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /orafiles or ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0 both cause a dump of /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s1 (/logs) ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0 works correctly. ...

    Default Partition problem

    Hi,

    I have a solaris box running the following (uname -a)
    SunOS ora-wmac 5.6 Generic_105181-29 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60

    I recently had to replace a disk and resize/moce some partitions about. Now
    on 2 of my partitions I get funny outcomes when I use ufsdump to backup the
    partitions.

    I have the following partitions on my disk2:
    c0t1d0s0 mounted on /orafiles
    c0t1d0s1 mounted on /logs.

    These seem to be ok in normal filesystem activity except when i use ufsdump.

    ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /orafiles
    or
    ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0

    both cause a dump of /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s1 (/logs)

    ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0
    works correctly.

    like wise:
    ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /logs
    or
    ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/dsk/c0t1d0s1

    both cause a dump of /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s2

    ufsdump 0uf /dev/rmt/0 /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s1
    works correctly.

    All other partitions seem to backup ok - also on other systems where I have
    moved/resized partitions in the same way.

    What could be causing this and how can i fix it?

    thanks

    Tim

    Check your /etc/vfstab and see if the first two columns match up for
    these file-systems (they should only differ in /dsk/ <-> /rdsk/).
