Sounds like the good-ol' reverse DNS misconfiguration problem to me.

This is the number one most frequently askes question in this group
and this week I'm tring to respond to as many instrances of this
question as possible.

See numerous previous threads for explainations.

That would be because you don't actually read the group?  Figures!

BTW you can configure DejaNews to put a different e-mail address in
the From: line.  If you want replys to an address other than your
DejaNews account it would be a matter of common courtesy to do so.

But, then again, so is doing a DejaNews search before you post, and
you could not be bothered to do that even though you were posting from
DejaNews.  Perhaps I'm wasting my breath.

1. Getting data back from a disk after doing "newfs"?

Oops, I've apparently killed all the data on my disk, and before I
start the laborious process of restoring from scattered and incomplete
backup tapes, I was wondering if there was a way to get it back.

I was upgrading my Sun SPARCstation II from SunOS 4.1.1 to 4.1.3.
I have 3 disks: a 424MB internal, and two 1GB external SCSI disks.
The first two disks have various partitions such as /, /usr, /home,
swapping and so forth, and the third disk is just one single large
partition called /shared. When upgrading the OS, this second external
SCSI disk was basically unattached. After everything was done, I
repeated the steps I had earlier done to attach that second external disk:
(A) Changing the kernel config file so that it associates the right
device with the proper SCSI number, and remaking the kernel,
(B) "newfs /dev/rsd1g" This, of course was the blunder, so when I
(C) re-mounted the disk on /shared, the system thought it was blank.

Now, since the disk was not actually overwritten like "format" would
do, I was wondering if there is any hope of getting my data back. Any
commercial utilities to scavenge it? Doubtful, I realize, but I thought
I'd check...
