MountUnmount file systems

Manually start the required file system driver, if it is not running already. Invoke the mount command as follows depending on the file system type.

Filesystem Command
FFS mount /dev/da4s1 /mnt
EXT2FS mount –t ext2fs /dev/da4s1 /mnt
XFS mount –t xfs /dev/da4s1 /mnt
reiserfs mount –t reiserfs –o ro /dev/da4s1 /mnt
There is no read-write support for reiserfs
winfs mount –t winfs C:\TEMP /mnt
nfs mount –t nfs hostname:/share /mnt

winfs requires the file system used for creating inodes to be mounted on /cachefs. To create this file system for FFS using file c:\crossmeta\inodes and a size of 40MB with maxium inodes, type the following commands.

C:\> newfs –s 83886080 –F c:\crossmeta\inodes –i 256 ino
C:\> losetup loop1 c:\crossmeta\inodes
C:\> mount /dev/loop1 /cachefs

You can use unmount command on the device name or directory to unmount the file system. If there are programs with open files unmount will fail with busy error code.
