<Text item: SUMMARY:volctl>

  Original Problem:

  I am having a problem with volume mgt on an sparc 20 running sol 2.4.
  After checking the web site
  and doing a gopher search using both cdrom and vold, I couldn't find an
  answer. HELP!!!!

  arch: SunOS dsmspfs1 5.4 Generic_101945-32 sun4m sparc

  When trying to get volume mgt running, I am getting the following:

  dsmspfs1 root >> /usr/sbin/vold
  Wed Oct 4 18:16:42 1995 fatal: vol_init failed

  running vold with -v opt get's the following:

  dsmspfs1 root >> /usr/sbin/vold -v
  Wed Oct 4 18:06:20 1995 warning: vol_init: open failed on /dev/volctl;
  No such device or address
  Wed Oct 4 18:06:20 1995 fatal: vol_init failed

  no core or anything, just dosent work.

  What I want to do is reinstall volume mgt from the dist. os cd. , but
  when trying to mount the cd
  I am getting the following:

  dsmspfs1 root >> mount -r -F hsfs /dev/sr0 /cdrom
  hsfs mount: /dev/sr0 is not an hsfs file system.

  a ls -l on /dev/sr0 reveals:

  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Sep 17 15:39 sr0 -> dsk/c0t6d0s2
  (which is the address of my cdrom). I'm lost. I have tried to reboot
  several times to no avail.

  plz help... will summarize..


  remote mount of distribution cd from another system, re-install:

  154 SUNWvolg Volume Management Graphical User Interface
                       (sparc) 1.0.3
  155 SUNWvolr Volume Management, (Root)
                       (sparc) 11.5.1,REV=
  156 SUNWvolu

  and apply patch 101907-05
