Question SWAP DISK 301 Disappears After zVM Guest Logoff


Hello all,
I'm using the shareware SWAPGEN EXEC to create two swap disks (300 & 301) for my SUSE 11 SP3 guest. First of all during installation both disks are listed as formatted but only the 300 retains a mount point of swap . I have to mkswap for the 301 and then add the following line to /etc/fstab ==> /dev/disk/by-path/ccw-0.0.0301-part1 swap swap defaults 0 0
If I reboot the system the swap disk stays intact. Once I log the guest off it's gone.

Does anyone know how to make this permanent?

Thumbs up

I found the resolution to my problem. Someone had a problem with the SWAPGEN EXEC going from SLES 11 SP1 to SP2. The fix for them was to download the latest version of the EXEC. I checked the version of the EXEC we had and found it was from 2008 and probably came from an older SLES 9 or 10 installation disk. I downloaded the latest version and the problem is resolved. The newest EXEC created one less 4K block for both 300 (256MB) & 301 (512MB) swap disks. The link for the latest version is:

I would suggest you sign-up to the linux-390 list. The author of swapgen is a regular contributor.
Good coverage of z/VM as well as zLinux.
