/dev/dsk/xlv/volume 1 bad filesystem

Unread postby walther » Sat Jun 23, 2012 5:08 am

hi guys , im a rookie around here and i need desperate help.

I saved some files from an O2 machine on an external hdd (ultrascsi 18gb).
did that just in time before O2 crashed.
now i need to copy that files to an O2+ machine in perfect shape (like new), attaching ext. hdd to it in Filesystem Manager appears like "/dev/dsk/xlv/volume 1" ,and no size reported(--).
when trying to mount it ,im getting "bad filesystem" message.

thank you

Welcome to nekochan, walther.

If the external disk contains the complete original extended logical volume (/dev/dsk/xlv/volume 1), then you might find this post by josehill helpful:

thanks for fast reply.
as i said before i im starting learning this from scratch.
how can i find O2+ hostname?
how can i check (step by step) if xlv function is enable?
when i saved files that i need from old O2 ,i just mounted external scsi , set the permissions and everything had gone well.


please be gentle with a dumb head
