Agent functions

The value of the Operations attribute for this agent is OnOff.


Mounts a block device on the directory. If the mount process fails for non-NFS mounts, the agent attempts to run the fsck command on the device to remount the block device.  

If file system type is NFS, agent mounts the remote file system to a specified directory. The remote NFS file system is specified in the BlockDevice attribute. 


Unmounts the mounted file system gracefully. 


Determines if the file system is mounted. 


Unmounts the mounted file system forcefully. 


The Mount info agent function executes the command: 

AIX and Solaris:  

df -k mount_point


bdf mount_point


df -h mount_point

The output displays Mount resource information:

To initiate the info agent function, set the InfoInterval timing to a value greater than 0. In this example, the info agent function executes every 60 seconds: 

haconf -makerw

hatype -modify Mount InfoInterval 60

The command to retrieve information about the Mount resource is: 

hares -value mountres ResourceInfo

  • chgmntlock

    Invoke this action to reset the VxFS file system lock to a VCS-defined lock.

  • mountpoint.vfd

    Checks if the specified mount point exists on the offline node. If it fails, it creates the mount point directory using mkdir command.

  • mounted.vfd

    Checks if the mount point is already mounted on the offline node. If it fails, you need to unmount all the file systems from the specified mount point directory.

  • vxfslic.vfd

    Checks for valid Veritas File System (VxFS) licenses. If it fails, you need to update the license for VxFS.

  • mountentry.vfd

    Checks that the mount point is not listed in file system tables (e.g. /etc/filesystems /etc/vfstab).

    This action prevents the automatic mounting of the file system when the system reboots. If it fails, you need to remove mount point from file system tables.
