    I am facing problem on one of the K-Class HP file server. /sbin/mount
    command size is 0 bytes. After reboot of this machine, obviously it is
    unable to mount /usr, /var, /tmp and hence, it is not going into network.
    I have tried using mountall command, but i believe it uses mount
    External storage are connected thru fiber to this machine and there are
    lots of volume group and logical volume on this.
    But it has only one internal disk.

    I have tried to boot using CD, so i could restore mount command either
    from CD itself or from /usr/bin. But booting from CD ask to install OS. As
    there is only one internal disk, we don't have option to install OS on
    other disk and then restore evertything. In this case, I have to reinstall
    OS on the same disk.

    Could you please give your valuable suggestion to resolve this issue.

    Otherwise I have to Install OS and then try to restore the data on LVM.
    In this case, I have to create all device file manually, activate volume
    group and then mount the logical volume.

    mkdir /dev/vg01
    cd /dev/vg01
    mknod /dev/vg01/group c 64 0x040000
    mknod /dev/vg01/lvol1 c 64 0x040001
    mknod /dev/vg01/lvol1 b 64 0x040001


    vgchange -a y /dev/vg01

    I am not sure, if this will work. If you have other good way, please let
    me know.
