    Unanswered: Urgent:After add a raw partition using onspaces partition structure changed

    Hi All,

    Can you please consider it as a bit urgent for me?

    I have an issue like after allocating an chunk or any raw partition to informix using onspaces command like this

    onspaces -a datadbs -p /dev/rdsk/c1t5d0s3 -o 0 -s 8193000

    then informix partition structure(some of the slices sizes becomes zero )got changed on the disk 5.

    Part Tag Flag Cylinders Size Blocks
    0 root wm 0 - 25 129.19MB (26/0/0) 264576
    1 swap wu 26 - 51 129.19MB (26/0/0) 264576
    2 backup wu 0 - 14086 68.35GB (14087/0/0) 143349312
    3 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    4 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    5 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
    6 usr wm 52 - 14086 68.10GB (14035/0/0) 142820160
    7 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0

    Can any of you help me why after allocating the disk slice to informix using onspace command the slice size becoming Zero and also if I check the partition table it is telling the disk has been formated.

    Hi,

    I think that you must create especial device on /dev/rdsk/c1t5d0s3. Use mknod command next change owner.group = informix and chmod 660.
    Next run onspaces.
    I suggest that use symbolic links to raw-devices intead of raw directly.

    Gustavo.
