Reinstalling Lotus Foundations 1.2 - Disk - Zot

There is only one thing left to do and that is format the disks and start again. There is a hidden program available for this called disk-zot. It does not format the drive but rewrites the MBR and other hidden parts of the disk.

I rebooted and the system was still active! Arggghhhh, so do not reboot, type in setup and ZAP the config as well. :-(












Some hidden commands that can be used:


Weaver commands can be used to tell Nitix to always use a specific file system. For example, if you have a server that was upgraded to Nitix v5.0 and you never want disks formatted as ext3, you can use these commands to force the use of ReiserFS always.

Note that these commands cannot be used to automatically switch a disk from using one file system to another. For example, if you have disks using ext3, you cannot use the commands to have it automatically convert the file system to ReiserFS. You will first need to zot the disks, set the commands, then reformat the drives. If the drives are reformatted before the commands are applied, you may have to wipe the drives and start over.

To determine which file system the disks are currently using, read the article [Determining the file system type in Nitix v5.0 and later].
