SGI's XFS filesystem support for SME-Server 7.x
« on: September 04, 2006, 08:56:02 AM »
Hi,

Is it possible to use XFS journaling filesystem in SME Server?
If so, is there a "howto" type document  on how to do it?
If not, please enable it because i believe it's an important and nice feature.

Many thanks and more power to all!

Live long and Prosper!

I've installed it on a Centos 4.3 a few months ago and got the RPMS from

http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/
I think you also have to install dmapi, xfsprogs, xfsdump...

Good luck

I'm curious as to why you think it is an important feature. Why do you think that? What problems have you had with the ext3 file system?

mount: fs type xfs not supported by kernel

I need to be able to mount files on a MagnetoOptical drive that are on a xfs file system.  These are medical images (DICOM) that were created on a SUN IRIX type system.

I have looked at the above link and could not find any RPMs that seemed related.

Here is some output:

Code: [Select]

[root@qpak ~]# fdisk -l /dev/sdc

Disk /dev/sdc (SGI disk label): 255 heads, 63 sectors, 247 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

[root@qpak ~]# mount -t xfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt/rescue

Am I doing something wrong or what can be done?
