When QIOMKFILE is running creates file correctly, but he gets error - extra file


When QIOMKFILE is run it creates file correctly with an extra file It was found that running qiomkfile without mounting with qio option, an extra file is created: Incorrect configuration: # ls -lart | grep data01 -rw-r----- 1 sybase sybase 4294967296 Jul 14 13:33 .data01 lrwxrwxrwx 1 sybase sybase 19 Jul 14 13:33 data01 -> .data01::cdev:vxfs: -rw-r--r-- 1 sybase sybase 4294967296 Jul 14 13:36 .data01::cdev:vxfs: <<<--- EXTRA! Mount Options as seen in the /etc/mnttab: /dev/vx/dsk/datavg/encrDev /encr_devices vxfs rw,suid,delaylog,largefiles,ioerror=mwdisable,dev=510afc81276788771


If VxFS is installed and Quick I/O is licensed, Quick I/O is enabled by default when a file system is mounted. In this case, “qio” was not used when mounted as seen from the “/etc/mnttab” output. /dev/vx/dsk/datavg/encrDev /encr_devices vxfs rw,suid,delaylog,largefiles,ioerror=mwdisable,dev=510afc81276788771


Alternatively, one can use the VxFS specific mount option, “-o qio”, to enable Quick I/O as shown below without having to umount and then mount filesystem. # mount -F vxfs -o remount,qio /dev/vx/dsk/DG/VOL /MNT_POINT
