Seems you are installing SF/HA, not only VCS.

See: https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6.0.1/solaris/productguides/html/virtualstore_install/ch02s05.htm

 

Veritas File System requirements

To avoid an unexpected need for a reboot, verify the values of the variables before installing Veritas File System. Use the following commands to check the values of the variables:

 

For Solaris 11:

# echo "lwp_default_stksize/X" | mdb -k 
lwp_default_stksize:
lwp_default_stksize:            8000

# echo "svc_default_stksize/X" | mdb -k 
svc_default_stksize:
svc_default_stksize:            8000

If the values shown are less than 6000 (for Solaris 10) and less than 8000 (for Solaris 11), you can expect a reboot after installation.

Note:

The default value of the svc_default_stksize variable is 0 (zero), which indicates that the value is set to the value of the lwp_default_stksize variable. In this case, no reboot is required, unless the value of the lwp_default_stksize variable is too small.

To avoid a reboot after installation, you can modify the /etc/system file with the appropriate values. Reboot the system prior to installing the packages. Add the following lines to the /etc/system file:

.....
 

 

For Solaris 11:

set lwp_default_stksize=0x8000
set rpcmod:svc_default_stksize=0x8000
