Pinned topic BigInisghts Installation failing with GPFS

‏2013-09-25T12:45:18Z |

Hi,

 We are trying install BI with GPFS file system, installation is failing on the time of GPFS installation.

We are trying with two nodes for GPFS, as per the installation drive /dev/sda4 has not mounted and this mount has been pointed for GPFS installation.

The error is,

 

Disk name    NSD volume ID      Device         Node name                Remarks      

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 gpfs1nsd     0AE2E0175242BC05   /dev/sda4      bigone                   server node

 gpfs2nsd     0AE2E01C5242BC0B   /dev/sda4      bigtwo                   server node

 

+ checkSuccess 472 '-  execute mmlsnsd'

+ '[' 0 '!=' 0 ']'

+ set -x

+ for i in '${MC_LIST}' '${CLIENT_LIST}'

+ sudo ssh bigone 'mkdir -p /dev/sda4'

mkdir: cannot create directory `/dev/sda4': File exists

+ checkSuccess 477 '-  create GPFS mount point directory on bigone'

+ '[' 1 '!=' 0 ']'

+ set +x

Error encountered at line 477 while attempting to:

- create GPFS mount point directory on bigone

Exiting.

[FATAL] Failed to setup a GPFS file system

[FATAL] Failed to install GPFS

 

Request your inputs to resolve this issue.

 

Thanks

    (I'd responded to this in another forum)

    The "device" is distinct from the "mount point".

    /dev/sda4 is the device.

    The mount point is a path where the GPFS file system will be mounted once created. For this, you should specify a path e.g. /bigpfs, that should be a new directory or an empty.directory.

    The error is encountered because the device itself was specified as the mount point.
