Mounting a file system

You can mount a VxFS file system by using the mount command. If you enter this command, the generic mount command parses the arguments and the -F fstype option executes the mount command specific to that file system type. For VxFS and Veritas-installed products, the generic mount command executes the VxFS mount command from the directory /sbin/fs/vxfs3.5. If the -F option is not supplied, the command searches the file /etc/fstab for a file system and an fstype matching the special file or mount point provided. If no file system type is specified, mount uses the default file system type (VxFS).
