I have one mount point in AIX , it is the shared disk ( we use GPFS ) .
It is backup space. Now, it don't see it when using "df -k" .
Normally , i see file system is mounted on /backup.
Would anybody give me the advise to find the reason ?

Verify the GPFS installation: lslpp -l gpfs\*

It could be that the GPFS daemon is not up so check if it is started on all nodes: mmstartup -a
Mount the filesystem if not done automatically upon GPFS daemon start.
