Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2012

Applies to:

Sun QFS and Storage Archive Manager (SAM) - Version: 4.6 and later   [Release: 4.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using ftpconfig(1M), to set up an anonymous FTP server, it fails when using a directory found on a Shared QFS file system.

# ftpconfig -d /samfs1
Updating directory /samfs1
ftpconfig: Error: Creation of devices in /samfs1/dev failed

Examination of this truss output on this operation shows the mknod(2) system call failing with an 'Operation not supported' error.

20109/1:         0.4801 mknod("/samfs1/dev/conslog", 020666, 0x00540000) Err#48 ENOTSUP
