Hi, the below was resolved by rebooting the server. After a reboot the device file /dev/da0s1g has been created, however this doesnt seem completely normal as sysinstall obviously expected to see the new device file immediately. Perhaps there is a prob with my system or is there just a problem with the expectations of sysinstall?? :S cheers Andy. andys writes:
Hi, ok, so I have attempted to proceed with my original task which was to create a new UFS2 parition (using sysinstall). Having chosen "c" and then "w" from the lable section, i recieve the following error: Error mounting /dev/da0s1g on /export : No such file or directory After exiting sysinstall, I can see from bsdlabel:
8 partitions:
#        size   offset    fstype   [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
a: 20971520        0    4.2BSD        0     0     0
b: 20971520 75497472      swap
c: 285153687 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part, don't edit
d: 20971520 20971520    4.2BSD        0     0     0
e: 20971520 41943040    4.2BSD        0     0     0
f: 12582912 62914560    4.2BSD        0     0     0
g: 146800640 96468992    4.2BSD        0     0     0
bsdlabel: partition c doesn't cover the whole unit! "g" is my new partition. Under /dev however I dont see the device file:
ls /dev/da0*
/dev/da0        /dev/da0s1a     /dev/da0s1c     /dev/da0s1e
/dev/da0s1 /dev/da0s1b /dev/da0s1d /dev/da0s1f Can anyone help :(
thanks a lot,
