Important Notes

Note: You have not selected the latest product version. Consider installing or upgrading to the latest version; otherwise, you may encounter issues that have already been fixed. To run a new report for the latest product version, select it from the Veritas product drop-down list.

AIX 7.1 support requires SFCFSHA 5.1 SP1 PR1.
In the VxFS 5.1 SP1 release, you can create and mount only file systems with disk layout Version 6, Version 7, or Version 8. Neither VxFS 5.1 nor VxFS 5.1 SP1 supports disk layout version 4. Before you install VxFS 5.1, you can use the vxupgrade utility to upgrade this unsupported layout version online.

Before you install VxFS 5.1, you should upgrade VxFS disk layouts to a supported version. VxFS 5.1 SP1 can mount disk layout version 4 only to perform an online upgrade. Note that VxFS 5.1 cannot mount disk layout version 4.

For more information about this issue, see http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH78028.
For more information about disk layouts, see Veritas File System Administrator's Guide.
