Example Midterm Test Questions

1. List the 5 steps (exact commands) you would enter in order to
   format an ext3 file system on hard drive partition /dev/sdb2,
   label it BACKUP, set its maximum mount count to 50, check it for 
   errors and mount it on directory /mnt. 

   You should assume the mount point and the hard drive partition
   already exist and that the partition has never been formatted.

   [ Each command is worth one mark. ]

	   1st COMMAND: _____________________________________

	   2nd COMMAND: _____________________________________

	   3rd COMMAND: _____________________________________

	   4th COMMAND: _____________________________________

	   5th COMMAND: _____________________________________
2. Describe the process of use LVM to extent a partition
           1st COMMAND: fdisk /dev/sdb # create two partitions sdb1 and sdb2

	   2nd COMMAND: mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdb1; mkfs -t ext3 /dev/sdb2

	   3rd COMMAND: pvcreate /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2

	   4th COMMAND: vgcreate /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2
