while creating redo logs with 4k block size
we had some error
ORA-01378: The logical block size (4096) of file /u005/oradata/redo/mmbqas02/redo0101.log is not compatible with the disk sector size (medi
a sector size is 512 and host sector size is 512)

So the concern now is:

1-on this host these 2 file systems

df -g
/dev/lv2957017     28.75     20.73   28%       17     1% /u005
/dev/lv2957018     28.75     20.73   28%       17     1% /u015

lsfs
/dev/lv2957017  --         /u005                  jfs2  60293120 noatime,rw yes  no
/dev/lv2957018  --         /u015                  jfs2  60293120 noatime,rw yes  no

we have asked our AIX admin to rebiuld these 2 file systems using (4096) instead of 512B,is it currently 4096?or he made a mistake?

2-what is disk sector size that is showing in the eroor msg?how can we check its size and how can we change it


we have DS8500 behind SVC aix 7.1 TL2 SP3

"smitty errpt" will show all errors AIX logged.
Did you read AIX install guide on configuring AIO for oracle?

Oracle does lowlevel checks to see you have advanced format drive under.
