Error in creating logical partition

Dear Members,
I am using SCO-Unix 5.0.5. I have created 2 logical drives but some of the blocks are overlapped and are now giving warning during startup. I have used fsck to settle the problems but to no avail. Kindly help me to sort out the problem.

Suggest you remove the logical drives and recreate them.

I'm not a expert in SCO - but in dealing with creating logical/physical drives and mapping them incorrectly, you normally have to back out of what you did and start over. If you have been running with this condition and now have data you can't lose, then I suggest you 'backup' anything you can and start over.

See the system admin guide for more assistance - note this one is for 5.0.7.
