Solution



A bug in VERITAS File System (tm) 4.0 prevents file systems larger than 32 terabytes from mounting.  The above error message is returned.


Even after a full fsck, the file system will not mount.

VERITAS Incident 152360 was created to track this issue.  A hotfix is currently available to customers running VERITAS File System 4.0 MP1 RP2 and Solaris 9 only.  The fix will be incorporated into a rolling patch at a later date.

Contact VERITAS Customer Services if you feel you need this hotfix.
