does anyone know how to move Ultrix 4.2 to a new disk in a DecSystem5100?
The old one became to small:) and there are no more free scsi-slots:(
I tried to move the OS form disk3 to disk1, but the bos doesn't boot
from disk1. This is what I did:
1 Formatted the new disk with "rzdisk -f known /dev/rrz1c"
2 made a fs with "newfs /dev/rrz1c"
made a partitiontable with "chpt -a" and customized it so that
/dev/rz1a and /dev/rz1g ("/" + "/usr") are of the same size as
the old / and /usr on /dev/rz3[a,g] and a bigger swap (eg /dev/rz1b)
3 did a "dd if=/dev/rrz3a of=/dev/rrz1a" same with /dev/rrz?[a,g]
4 fscked /dev/rz1[a,g] cleanly
5 made a new kernel to use /dev/rz1[a,b] as root, swap, dump and
copied it to /dev/rz1a
6 tried to boot from /dev/rz1a with boot -f rz(0,1,0)
(after halting it)
7 it didn't boot!
I haven't found any cmd to create a new bootblock on the new disk as I am
used to do on SUNs (this is why I "dd"ed /dev/rrz??).
I thought of this to be not very critically, guess I missed something,
can somebody please help?
thank's in advance,
