Default Can I mount AIX disk in NetBSD?

Hello

Is it possible to mount sysid 9 type partition in NetBSD or in other *BSD?

# fdisk /dev/wd1
Say: /dev/wd1d is AIX boot partition or Coherent

What type should I use in mount?
# mount -t ??? /dev/wd1d /mnt/rescue

BR
Sami

No, AIX seems to use the JFS file system, which is not supported by any of the BSD derivatives.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news.

I was thinking little bit about your question since I saw somewhere that NetBSD supports bunch of different file systems unsupported by other BSDs as read only systems. Today I checked the release notes for5.0 and it seems that JFS is not the one.

Could you export that file system as NFS and than mount on NetBSD. The other option would be to involve Linux which does support JFS and then to export file system as ext2 which is supported by BSDs.
