mount point

hi people,

I'm trying to create a mount point, but am having no sucess at all, with the following:

mount -F ufs /dev/dsk/diskname /newdirectory

but i keep getting - mount-point /newdirectory doesn't exist.

What am i doing wrong/missing?

Thanks
Rc

You'll need to make sure that /newdirectory (i.e., the mountpoint), exists before trying to mount anything on that mountpoint.

Type
Code:
mkdir /newdirectory

to make the directory, then run the mount command again.
