Error description

  • mkwpar fails because the / filesystem cannot be created
    with the following error message:
    
    # mkwpar -c -l -D rootvg=yes devname=hdisk1 -n abcwpar
    
    Creating workload partition's rootvg. Please wait...
    mkwpar: Creating file systems...
     /
    mkwpar: 0960-351 Failed to create the / file system.
    umount: 0506-347 Cannot find anything to unmount.
    umount: 0506-364 There are no file systems of type
    abcwpar currently
    mounted.
    

Local fix

  • Run 'lvgenmajor' and try mkwapr. May need to run
    lvgenmajor
    a few times to bump up major number in clash.

    fsck will look for only file systems mounted in global to find
    any device conflicts.
