Re: root disk problem

You must runn the steps provided on the pdf document, at
"Confirming Disk Failure" - page 12.

What about syslog? Any entries in the log about this disk?

How about dd (read test)? And do you have any messages logged in syslog (cat /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log)?

Re: root disk problem

>>>the o/p of DD is
#dd if=/dev/dsk/c2t0d0 of=/dev/null bs=1024
/dev/dsk/c2t0d0: I/O error
dd:cannot open /dev/dsk/c2t0d0

Try with the raw device,(rdsk),

#dd if=/dev/rdsk/c2t0d0 of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=100
