    globaldevices file system

    Shashi Kanth Boddula

      Hi

       

      Solaris Cluster 3.3 u2 on Solaris 10 x86.

       

      I have dedicated slice for global device file system. During the cluster creation, i have not chosen the default method which is lofi method.

       

       

      For node "node1",
          Is it okay to use this default (yes/no) [yes]?  no

          Testing for "/globaldevices" on "node1" ... done

       

      For node "node2",
          Is it okay to use this default (yes/no) [yes]?  no

          Testing for "/globaldevices" on "node2" ... done

       

       

       

      After cluster creation, i am seeing lofi device for /global, i am not seeing the slice which i used for /globaldevices is used.

       

      # mount | grep lofi
      /global/.devices/node@1 on /dev/lofi/127 read/write/setuid/devices/rstchown/intr/largefiles/logging/noquota/global/xattr/nodfratime/onerror=panic/dev=240007f on Wed Oct  9 07:30:23 2013
      /global/.devices/node@2 on /dev/lofi/126 read/write/setuid/devices/rstchown/intr/largefiles/logging/noquota/global/xattr/nodfratime/onerror=panic/dev=240007e on Wed Oct  9 07:30:23 2013

       

      # mount | grep globaldevices
      /globaldevices on /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s3 read/write/setuid/devices/rstchown/intr/largefiles/logging/xattr/onerror=panic/dev=840083 on Wed Oct  9 07:30:07 2013

       

      # lofiadm
      Block Device             File
      /dev/lofi/126            /.globaldevices

       

      # du -h /.globaldevices
      1.0G   /.globaldevices

       

      Someone clarify me why the cluster used lofi? Since i have a dedicated slice for /globaldevice, why the cluster created lofi again ?

       

      Thanks & Regards,
