mount command


Hello friends!
Today I have a problem with mounting the filesystem:

# mount /dev/mapper/fujitsu_test /u01
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/fujitsu_test /u01
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/fujitsu_test,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Can anybody help me?

Maybe it's not ext4 - unless you're sure of that try some other formats.

Maybe to obvious but is fujitsu_test already formatted to a specific FS?

This filesystem was workable earlier. (It is my test system, on production system same filesystem mounted as ext4, so I decided that test filesystem is ext4 too.)

I founded something:
# ls -l /dev/disk/by-id|grep -i #my_uuid#
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 10 Nov 1 16:18 dm-uuid-mpath-#my_uuid# -> ../../dm-2
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 9 Nov 6 14:23 scsi-#my_uuid# -> ../../sdh
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 9 Nov 6 14:23 wwn-0x#my_uuid# -> ../../sdh

# mount -t ext4 /dev/dm-2 /u01
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/fujitsu_test,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
# mount -t ext4 /dev/sdh /u01
mount: /dev/sdh already mounted or /u01 busy

# fuser -c /dev/sdh
/dev/sdh: 2336
# ps -ef | grep 2336
root 2336 1 0 Nov01 ? 00:00:44 /sbin/multipathd

what is it?

Is it a raid or LVM partition? What do you mean by same filesystem on production system? Is it a cloned partition?

It's not clone, but long time ago two servers were created similarry.
This disk is not in lvm.

The disk is either empty or dead.

p.s. by empty I mean completely unformatted

@applehalf: Are you sure /dev/mapper/fujitsu_test isn't part of LVM/Raid?

What does pvdisplay show?

Also, what is the output of ls -l /dev/mapper/ and dmsetup ls

It seems that /dev/mapper/fujitsu_test has been part of LVM/Raid (or it is, but not set-up/implemented correctly):

lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 7 Nov 1 16:18 fujitsu_test -> ../dm-2
fujitsu_test (253, 2)


However, I'm not sure how this happened or how to restore it to the original setup.

OK, than the right way will be to format my disk and create new volume group.
Thank you.
