I'm new to aix. After rebooting my server I am unable to mount one of the
filesystems. It keeps saying that the device log cannot be located. The
device log /dev/lvlog00 does not exist. How can I go about recreating this?

mklv -t jfslog VGname 1
(if you want to specify a disk to put it on, specify it after the 1 )
make sure that the log device is closed:
lsvg -l VGname (look for the JFSlog you just created and check to see if it is
format the log device:
(answer yes to it when it says Destroy log?)
chfs -a log=/dev/NEWlogdevice /File_system_name
Check to see if the log device its complaining about even exists:
It could be affecting other file systems in this Volume group
If it is not in your rootvg what does lslv loglv00 say?? Does the log
actually exist?? It's really odd if a log would just dissapear (??) but if
you're absolutely sure that it is no longer there (and used to be) you can
make a new one with 'mklv -t jfslog -y loglv00 vgname 1'
But to me it sounds like a mismatch between you VG and /etc/filesystems.
Possibly someone moved the LV??
after I installed 2 wide differential scsi adapters to a P43/260 under AIX
4.3.1 cfgmgr gives the warning
cfgmgr: 0514-621 WARNING: The following device packages are required for
device support but are not currently installed.
I can not find these drivers on the AIX CDs or on floppys that came with
the adapters .
The adapters do obviously run.
Can I ignore this warning ? If not, where do I find the drivers ?
