VXVM on Solaris ( Sparc ) – Understanding boot Failures


I have started unixadminschool.com ( aka gurkulindia.com) in 2009 as my own personal reference blog, and later sometime i have realized that my leanings might be helpful for other unixadmins if I manage my knowledge-base in more user friendly format. And the result is today's' unixadminschool.com. You can connect me at - https://www.linkedin.com/in/unixadminschool/

    It is good one. I think this proce is for VXVM volume bur root file system is ufs other wise it should be like below. Please corrct me if wrong. For Iv) # fsck –F vxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/rootvol

    # mount –o remount /dev/vx/dsk/rootvol /

    @Sateesh, yes u r right. In case of vxvm vol. having Vxfs FS type you need to run fsck -F vxfs .

    I got something to share my exprience

    Yesterday we faced issue of OS got corrupted.
    Solaris server was not coming up , booting was went in loop.
    1)booted in safe mode
    2)Update the boot archive
    3) Reboot the system

    It should be fine now.

    Technical Steps
