    Viewing the syswrapper, you notice a large number of volumes mounted in the /etc/snaptab and etc/fstab.

     

    Example:

    /dev/volgr0/lvol89 /dev/volgr0/lvol1 1119499204 4/3 0 2005-06-23.000004 /hd/vol_mnt89 Common_451

    /dev/volgr0/lvol90 /dev/volgr0/lvol1 1119520809 4/3 0 2005-06-23.060009 /hd/vol_mnt90 Common_452

    /dev/volgr0/lvol91 /dev/volgr0/lvol1 1119542445 4/3 0 2005-06-23.120045 /hd/vol_mnt91 Common_453

    ---Solution---

     

    Select Storage>Snapshots and delete any snapshot schedules.

     

    You will need to delete from the beginning or end of the chain.

    There may be times when you are unable to delete the snap shots with this method. (It is ok if you are unable to do so).

    In addition, follow the procedures below to remove the snapshots (after reboot it creates a new schtab and snaptab).

     

    1) mv /etc/schtab /etc/schtab.orig (renames the snapshot schedule file to prevent snapshots from firing)

     

    2) mv /etc/snaptab /etc/snaptab.orig (renames the snapshot table file to prevent snapshots from mounting)

     

    3) cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.orig

    4) cat /etc/fstab.orig (verify you have a copy before removing)

    5) If necessary, remove additional volume entries in fstab (vi etc/fstab) and save fstab.

    6) Example of generic fstab with only one share ( SHARE1), you may need to ask the customer the name of his shares.:

     

     

    /dev/md100root / xfs rw,suid,dev,noatime,auto,nouser 1 1

    none /proc proc defaults 0 0

    /dev/md101swap swap swap defaults 0 0

    /dev/volgr0/lvol0 /hd/vol_mnt0 xfs defaults,usrquota,grpquota,quota,extperm 1 2

    /hd/vol_mnt0/shares /shares/SHARE1 xfs rw,nouuid,norecovery,bind 1 1

     

    7) reboot ?f

    8) verify shares are mounted.
