thanx Greg, you're right as always. I booted into single user from start up and sure enough everything was editable then.
I got another problem though. I set up 2 disks for vinum and want to allocate exisiting partitions to vinum mirrored volumes. I left 16 blocks at the begining, moved first partition ( swap ) to 281, recalculated offsets in vinum config with -16, run vinum config, everything's peachy, drives rebuild, fsck sees no errors, I edit fstab, reboot, vinum module loads but root can not be mounted as a vinum device, I still have to manually specify my regular root ( /dev/das1a ) partition. dmesg output below and vinum/disklabel too. thanx a million. Greg for US president :) Mounting root from ufs:/dev/vinum/root missing unit number setrootbyname failed ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp Root mount failed: 6 disklabel ( similar for both disks ) --------------------------------- a: 21094400 2109440 4.2BSD 2048 16384 89 # (Cyl. 131*- 1444*) b: 2109159 281 swap # (Cyl. 0*- 131*) c: 156248127 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 9725*) e: 133044287 23203840 4.2BSD 2048 16384 89 # (Cyl. 1444*- 9725*) h: 156248111 16 vinum # (Cyl. 0*- 9725*) vinum ------------------ drive a device /dev/ad2s1h drive b device /dev/ad3s1h volume root plex org concat sd length 21094400s driveoffset 2109424s drive a plex org concat sd length 21094400s driveoffset 2109424s drive volume home plex org concat sd length 133044287s driveoffset 23203824s drive a plex org concat sd length 133044287s driveoffset 23203824s drive b On Fri, 18 Jun 2004, Greg 'groggy' Lehey wrote: > [Format recovered--see http://www.lemis.com/email/email-format.html] > > Output wrapped. > > On Thursday, 17 June 2004 at 12:04:01 -0400, synrat wrote: > > 4.8 > > > > I'm trying to setup partitions for vinum. > > I am in single user mode, but every time I try > > to modify swap size to accomodate for vinum confuration > > I get > > > > disklabel: ioctl DIOCWDINFO: open partition would move or shrink > > re-edit the label?
