The Question is:
I have a vax4600 Series system and have just installed hsd30 (i create a disk
of 140gb on raid5 )into the system. I am trying to initialize this disk with
cluster size 32.
But when I try to initialize the disk I am
receiving the following error "
%INIT-F-CLUSTER, unsuitable cluster factor" .
thank for your help
The Answer is :
Your OpenVMS version is too low for this cluster factor; if you wish to
have smaller disk cluster factors, you will want to be running OpenVMS
V7.2 or later.
$ HELP/MESSAGE/FACILITY=INIT CLUSTER
provides the following:
CLUSTER, unsuitable cluster factor
Facility: INIT, INITIALIZE Command
Explanation: The cluster size specified for an INITIALIZE command is either
too small or too large for the volume. The maximum cluster
size for any volume is one hundredth the size of the volume.
The minimum size is calculated by dividing the disk size by
1,044,480 (that is, 255 x 4096).
User Action: Correct and reenter the command.
