Solaris fsck script

I need to have a solution to run fsck and perform a ufsdump on a Solaris 8 Sparc server that includes Oracle 8i 8.1.7.  I will use this solution on a monthly basis, or whenever the need arises.  I perform this function manually now and would like to automate this process.

How about enabling journaling and doing away with the fsck?

Write down the fsck command you want to run into a shell script file.
Execute this file and verify if this works fine.
Add a cron job to make sure that the sytem will execute this file every 1st day of the month.

read
man fsck.
man cron.
thx.

make sure you have the path/to/shell in the first line of your script

#!/usr/bin/ksh
/bin/fsck whatever
/bin/ufsdate whatever

make sure you make the script executeable (chmod +x /path/to/script)

Hi
As suggested by edvinkv and liddler
you shud write shell script

#!/bin/sh
fsck -y device-name 1> /dev/null
/usr/sbin/ufs/dump -0uf /dev/rmt/0 device-name 1> /dev/null
make executable chmod +x filename
then write a crotab as follows
#crontab -e
to execute ypur script at 17.30 on 30th of every month
enter the following lines
30 17 30 * *  path/script-name
save it

hope this works
