VX partion copy problem with dd.

VX partion copy problem with dd.

Post by Michael Yak » Sat, 22 Feb 1997 04:00:00

I am setting up an Oracle database running on StorageArray 112's
under RAID 5 - 1 gb raw partions.  When I try to move the data
from one raw partion to another, using dd, it never completes.
The syntax I am using is

    "dd if=/dev/vx/rdsk/oracle/r022 of=/dev/vx/rdsk/oracle/r021".

What am I doing wrong?  Do I need to specify a blocksize or
another parm?

What does fdisk or cfdisk say about the partition table layout?

The amount of mounted usable space will vary depending on how the
filesystems are initialized, since the filesystem overhead will vary.
