We have an HP9000 running HP-UX 10.x which is in trouble. Someone commented
out the entry for /usr in fstab and rebooted the machine. :-(
Now we have a recovery CDROM, and can boot into a "recovery shell". How does
one mount the filesystem containing /etc and edit fstab? I'm fluent with
Unix, but not with HP-UX specifics (this machine is very new). I was
able to "loadfile" mount, but when I tried to mount a partition, it said
hfs-specific mount command not available. What commands do I need to load
(apart from mount)?
Also, I'm not sure what partition I should be trying to mount -- what is the
default / partition on a stock hpux install called? In normal operations I
remember seeing a /dev/vg00 (LVM) but right now I only see /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s1lvm
and the like.
If someone could give me detailed instructions, I'd much appreciate it. I'm
not sure if anyone else is interested, so email is probably appropriate, I
can post a summary if anyone is interested.
