Question Partition handling commands equivalents for HP-UX


I think I'll have to move some information from one partition to a bigger one. I have no problem unmounting, doing bynary backups of partitions with dd, creating partitions, copying stuff from one partition to another, etc on GNU/Linux, however I'll try these stuff on HP-UX and I'd like to know if there are equivalents to these commands:

- df (so that I can see how much is used in each partition)
- mount (to see the mount points.... I guess this one is just like that in every *NIX, right?)
- dd to copy the information from one partition to another (in case I need to)
- fdisk
- mkfs.xxxx

And others that are normally used for thiese tasks. I've seen that there are utilities available on HP-UX, but I'd rather do it on a command-by-command fashion instead of trusting a menu based utility.

Using code tags to keep formating
Linux     HP-UX
=====     =====
df        bdf
mount     mount
dd        dd  newfs
As far as fdisk is concerned, I have only ever dealt with LVM on HP-UX.


Here are some notes I typed up many years ago:

lvcreate -n lvol129 /dev/vg01                      - Create a new (empty) logical volume
lvextend -L 500 /dev/vg01/lvol129 /dev/dsk/c8t0d2  - Extend the partition to 500MB on specific disk.
newfs -F vxfs -o largefiles /dev/vg01/rlvol129     - Create new Filesystem
mkdir /oradata/repos/u05                           - Make the folder to mount the new volume
vi /etc/fstab                                      - Add the entry in /etc/fstab
mount /oradata/repos/u05                           - Mount the new volume using the information in /etc/fstab
bdf /oradata/repos/u05                             - Check the new volume is being used and is the correct size
Check Filesystem Permissions!
bdf displays values in KB (same as df -k)
