Determining a Solaris File System type

These commands work whether or not the file system is mounted.

If you have the raw device name of a disk slice, you can use the fstyp or the df command to determine a file system's type.

The following example uses the fstyp command to determine the file system type:

# fstyp /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0

The following example uses the df -n command to display a system's file system types.:

# df -n
