I have vxfs filesystems and I want to know how to find out on what physical devices they are mounted on.

For eg, how do I verify if  /dev/vx/dsk/newdg/NEW01 is mounted on c1t2d0s3

Please check /etc/vfstab - This should give you the device name against the mount point.

Hope this helps.

This is what I have in the /etc/vfstab :-

/dev/vx/dsk/usr  /dev/vx/rdsk/usr   /usr   ufs    1   no      -    

Still need to know what physical device (eg, c1t2d0s3)?
