create filesystem

Before enterprise 6
# mke2fs -t ext3 /dev/pri/arsystem
OR for ent6
# mke2fs -t ext4 /dev/pri/arsystem
OR for ent7
# mke2fs -t xfs /dev/pri/arsystem

increasing inodes

if a filesystem has run out of inodes (df -i), the filesystem has to be recreated, there is currently no way to increase the inode limit on an existing filesystem. when the filesystem is created, the bytes per inode ratio (16384 is the default) needs to be modified (use appropriate filesystem type, see "create filesystem" above)

# mke2fs -t ext4 -i 4096 /dev/pri/arsystem
