failed write of utmpx

: To All Solaris Gurus:

: When shutting down my Solaris X86 2.5 system I get an error message:

:       INIT: failed write of utmpx entry: "s0"
:       INIT: failed write of utmpx entry: "fw"

: Does anyone know what causes this?
: Does anyone know how to resolve this?

It's harmless. This message is generated on a system with /var on
separate partition. When you shutdown the machine, /var get unmounted
before the shutdown completes.

1. INIT: failed write of utmpx entry:"s0"

I have seen these messages a lot of times on a lot of systems
since Solaris 2.3, but never on my own ones, until now:

    INIT: failed write of utmpx entry:"s0"
    INIT: failed write of utmpx entry:"fw"

So what do they mean? I recently moved the /var directory tree
into its own partition, can this be the cause?

(The messages are printed each time the system ist brought
down with `init 0'. They follow the message `The system is
down.' and precede the `syncing file systems... [11] [8] [3]
done'. The system in question runs Solaris 2.5 x86.)
