The following objectives for Exam CX-310-200 are covered in this chapter:
Explain disk architecture including the UFS file system capabilities and naming conventions for devices for SPARC, x64, and x86-based systems.
Explain when and how to list devices, reconfigure devices, perform disk partitioning, and relabel a disk in a Solaris operating environment using the appropriate files, commands, options, menus, and/or tables.
Explain the Solaris 10 OS file system, including disk-based, distributed, devfs, and memory file systems related to SMF, and create a new UFS file system using options for <1Tbyte and> 1Tbyte file systems.
Explain when and how to create a new UFS using the newfs command, check the file system using fsck, resolve file system inconsistencies, and monitor file system usage using associated commands.

Explain how to create and remove hard links in a Solaris directory.
Explain the purpose and function of the vfstab file in mounting UFS file systems, and the function of the mnttab file system in tracking current mounts.
