Using mkfs to create a ufs filesystem
To create a new ufs filesystem or convert an old one to a new
logical block size, use the following procedure:
If the new filesystem is to be created on
a disk partition that contains
an old filesystem, back up the old filesystem.
For information, see
Backup and Restore.
If the new filesystem is to be created
from an old filesystem, run
which reports the mounted filesystem name
and the physical volume name of the old filesystem.
These labels are destroyed
when you make the new filesystem,
so you must save them to restore later.
command to make the new filesystem
with the appropriate logical block size.
to restore the filesystem and volume names.
Populate the new filesystem--for example,
do a restore from
a filesystem backup, or,
if your system has two hard disks, do a
from a mounted filesystem.

they cannot convert logical block size.)
