File creation problem

Hi to all,

I am facing a strange problem on the Solaris-10 server. I am unable to create/write files on the server. After writing, when I go for the save, then it gives me and 'jag: I/O error'..where 'jag' is a file name. Please suggest me...


Regards,
Jagdish Machhi

Hve you tried in different location (filesystems) on the server using touch ?(meaning you havent the right to...) or is it a particular filesystem (in which case is it NFS and are you root?), what are the permission of the directory?

besides "touch" you can use "mkfile" - mkfile 10m 10MB
This will create 10 megabytes file, filled with zeroes.
