raw patitiion error after Sybase 11.5 installation in Solaris 2.6

my guess would be that you need to remove those partitions from your
/etc/vfstab file, so solaris doesn't try to mount them.
if i understand correctly, once you tell sybase about a partition, it
does its own thing with that partition, to the tune of its no longer
ufs at all, and sybase formats it how it sees fit.

Which cylinder does c1t2d0s3 begin on?  If you're using the first cyl
or two for a raw partition then you've overwritten the superblock.  As
long as no raw partitions begin at cyl 0 you should be ok.

: I have SUN Ultra 1 170E with 128mb, Solaris 2.6, 6 Gig HD(4+2) and 4 Gig

: checking ufs filesystems
: /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0s3: BAD SUPER BLOCK: MAGIC NUMBER WRONG
: /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0s3: USE AN ALTERNATE SUPER-BLOCK TO SUPPLY NEEDED
: INFORMATION:

: /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s5:  is clean

Looks like you have entries in your /etc/vfstab to mount those raw partitions.
fsck thinks they are ufs filesytems and so runs the check on them. To fix
this, just comment out those lines from the /etc/vfstab files and reboot.
