Smile Help me Please how to a Created solaris UFS slice anyone ?

hi

i have made 3 UFS Disks Slices using
fdisk From Open Solaris.

i keep getting invalid arguments or something like that
when trying to mount In BSD.

i had used this line in fstab file of FreeBSD

/dev/sd4s1 /goodies ufs rw 0 0

Even tried sd4s1a that was there

i made the directory mkdir /goodies

when i did ls /dev/sd*
i found sd4 and sd4a

It just would not mount at all on FreeBSD.
and since i was unable to read them even in UFS explorer on Vista.

i panicked and reinstalled Open Solaris to make sure my drives are ok.

They are fine Whew!


Please give me an example line of how to add a slice of UFS for BSD.

Here is a portions of my Vfstab from solaris and the available slices
that i have mounted on a solaris box

/dev/dsk/c6d1s0 - /crap ufs - no rw
/dev/dsk/c4d0s0 - /goodies ufs - no rw
/dev/dsk/c5d0s0 - /whatever ufs - no rw

# old-info for ntfs drives only before /dev/dsk/c2d1p1 - /crap ntfs -no ro

#

Thank You ever so much

All current {Open}Solaris installs default to zfs. Meaning the whole drive gets zfs'd if you don't know exactly what you are doing.

hi

You are right i do not know exactly what i am doing,
but i was able to to format those drives.
creating the solaris2 file systems i assume are ufs
i have over a terra of info on those drives.

the drives are mounted as ufs on my Solaris box.
i just am not understanding why i can not
mount them on BSD or on vista UfS Explorer

i wanted to be able to use all 3 OS
and be able to write to my UFS Drives
only on Solaris and BSD

i do not want to be stuck using
only one OS on this machine

i think you also told me at one time that
ZFS is being ported to FreeBSD.

You see i am having a little problem.
i have created UFS Solaris2 NFS on 3 drives
They mount perfectly on Open Solaris.

But i would like to have access to them anytime i
log into FreeBSD or Windows Vista with UFS Explorer.

Read only on Vista and R+W on BSD

i was unable to see these Drives with the
trial version of UFS Explorer
and unable to mount them on FreeBSD.

i can only imagine if it were the other way around
and i created the UFS from BSD.

Would Vista UFS Explorer be able to see those Drives
and or would Open Solaris be able to mount them.

It does get all to confusing.but i feel safe that
i dont do any more accidental formats when
they use to be NTFS Drives using Vista.

{Open}Solaris/FreeBSD use different/incompatible imlementation of UFS than FreeBSD/{Open}Solaris.
With older UFS1 you may be more lucky.

hm

So i guess ill just wait around till things thaw out.

i feel kind of stuck that i have not much of an option
right now.as i have almost
a terra of Data between those drives.

i like to toggle from time to time from OS to OS
when i need to do other tasks that cant be done on one.

People have been using the term latly Slowaris
it seems ok to me as far as speed and security.

The new version Open Solaris 05 08 with Compiz.

But Still Love Unix Like FreeBSD and OpenBSD alot

What are that other tasks?

Hmm, I have only one OS installed, and I still sometimes consider that as overkill [less is more]

Other tasks

Well i like to work with Digital Photography
Programs like Power Director and Dvd Pro Lab

Also some times i like to edit or Compose New Age Music.

Games i prefer to use my Xbox 360
i really can not stand pc games and the
joystick mouse issues.

Also i like the idea that BSD is more or less built from scratch and not just out of the box.

I like to understand the differences between commands under Open Solaris and FreeBSD

They are similar in ways yet so differet in other ways

Especially things like Useradd which is
different on Open Solaris then it is on FreeBSD.

As the objective is to share a slice between OSes, with ZFS you would be out of luck: not many OSes have an implementation.
AFAIK, best luck woul be with FAT32 (yeah) and ext2fs.
Not quite file systems I would use for TeraBytes Besides, I would not dare, even to test, play with multiple OSes to access that amount of data.

I ould rather build a server and go the mOnOwall/FreeNAS way. This in order to have a small OS and networking.

Now the question: if you have an OpenSolaris (UFS/ZFS or whatever) based NFS, why don't you use NFS to access them? Why try to mount the directories under UFS?

fwiw:
Poposal for a Ext2fs project on OpenSolaris
http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thre...82718&tstart=0
although there already are some ext2fs implementations. Go to OpenSolaris.org and enter ext2fs in the search.

Re: Slowaris.
I also have the feeling Solaris is less reponsive than OpenBSD. Maybe because OpenSolaris has everything and the kitchen sink installed and configured.

hi

Thanks yes remember im still quite new
to all this UFS stuff,it took me a while to
finally get it going with my drives.

i do not like fat 32 nor NTFS much these days.
unless its on a flash disk.

ill just take things slow for a while before
installing any more new Distros.

i Still use BSD as my server and i doubt
i would ever use anything else.

Right now i am just tinkering with
Open Solaris and having fun with it.
i know there is not much suport as there is in BSD.

Thanks

hi

Now the question: if you have an OpenSolaris (UFS/ZFS or whatever) based NFS, why don't you use NFS to access them? Why try to mount the directories under UFS?


Can you please explain to me more specific
in a way i can understand what you mean by that?
with maybe an example fstab line.
i am a bit confused.

NFS stands for network file server or new file system.

My Server is on a different machine its BSD.
I want to Multi Boot with Solaris FreeBSD and Vista.

Unfortunatly i can not play with BSD as my Desktop
on my Server Machine because it is said not to
use a server as a Desktop as a precaution of security.

1) i can not in anyway see my UFS Mount Slices
using UFS Explorer in Vista why i dont know.
i thought it was suppose to work with all solaris ad BSD

2) i can not mount my Ufs Slices i BSD and do not know another way to do so even if it were read only.Unless someone else knows how i can do that.

I do not want to leave FreeBSd i love it so much.
and have been using it for so long.

When i created the UFS from solaris all along i thought i would be able to access them from BSD as well.

Thank You
