SAP filesystem layout on Solaris 10 Assistance


Hi Guys,

I'd like to ask who has experience running SAP over Solaris a few questions regarding filesystem. I have strong backgound on AIX server but little over Solaris, so im transitioning from AIX to Solaris to understand this

My goal is to identify/Analyse how a SAP instance was installed on a Solaris Server and if so, following Best Practices.

First of all is to determine if the /usr/sap/PRD and Oracle filesystems where mounted all on the root directory or if were mounted

on separate filesystems which is the recommended setup

As example i have this output for df -g

/oracle/PRD (/dev/dsk/c4t0d2s5 ):

/sapmnt/PRD (/dev/dsk/c4t0d6s5 )

/home/prdadm (/dev/dsk/c4t0d7s3 ):

/usr/sap/PRD (/dev/dsk/c4t0d5s3 ):


/oracle/PRD/sapdata14(/dev/dsk/c4t0d8s0 )

/oracle/PRD/sapdata15(/dev/dsk/c4t0d4s0 )

/oracle/PRD/origlogA(/dev/dsk/c4t0d7s0 ):

/dev/dsk/xxxxxxxxx does mean they are all on the "root" directory instead being splitted into multiple filesystems?

Which commands would be helpful to analyze the Disk layout of this Server so I can understand how SAP was mounted:

devices ( HDD )

Volume Groups

Logical Volumenes

and file systems

(On AIX lsvg, lslv would be the choices)

Any help would be highly appreciated
