Mount HP-UX VXFS 6 filesystem on Redhat Linux Server?
I have a need to migrate a numebr of large files from several servers to a linux based system from HP-UX 11.23.
The data resides on VXFS version 6 filesystems on san storage.
I have found LVM tools that allow me to make the MVM structures visible as disks that show up in device mapper on the linux side and I can run strings and dd on the luns and they SEEM to contain the appropriate data.
The data itself is in Intersystems Cache database chunks. If I can get the actual files copied over, I can do an endian conversion on them and start using them immediately in the new environment. My problem is transport. I have several 32 GB file that need to be moved and while I haven't done time tests, I am assuming the actual migration time may be prohibitive.
I have downloaded a trial of Storage Essentials and installed it on the linux server, but after I make the logical volume visible, I getthe following error when trying to perform the mount:
UX:vxfs mount.vxfs: ERROR: V-3-25584: /dev/mapper/vg1220625654-lvol1 is not a supported device
UX:vxfs mount.vxfs: ERROR: V-3-24996: Unable to get disk layout version
Any help is appreciated. I have been searching high and low on the web, but can't seem to find any current threads about this. There are some older ones about freevxfs that used toexist for linux, but they all said it doesn't work with newer versions of vxfs filesystems.
