Problem with Mounts in NIM Maintenance at AIX 4.2.1


OS Level: 4.2.1
Type/Model: 580


Attempts at NIM maintenance return the following:

	mount of /dev/hd2 did not succeed, exiting

Accessing the rootvg and attempting to mount the filesystems (either through the menu or by typing exit) also return:

	mount of /dev/hd2 did not succeed, exiting

The mount command shows /dev/hd4 mounted over /mnt, /dev/ram0 on /, and maybe /SPOT and /SPOT/usr.


There are two separate procedures to fix this.

A permanent solution is to implement APAR IX69360.
