Disklabel problem on sparc Error msg: Label magic number or checksum is wrong!

Disklabel problem on sparc Error msg: Label magic number or checksum is wrong!

Post by Mike » Fri, 12 Nov 1999 04:00:00



Hi all!

I am trying to install 2.5 on a Sun IPX, when I go to write the
disklabel I get:

disklabel: iotcl DIOCWDINFO: Label magic number or checksum is wrong!
(disklabel or kernel is out of date)

disklabel: unable to write label.

I have had this problem on two different disks, a third disk works ok
but is way too small for my needs.

OK I've looked over the man pages, searched the newsgroups and have
come up with no answer. If you can please explain or point me to
somewhere that has an expalination or workaround.

regards,

Mike N

 
 
 

1. Harddisk-Problem: corrupt label - wrong magic number

Hi,

i've a problem with a Harddisk on Sparcstation10 running
Solaris 2.5.1.

I've "formatted" a new Harddisk ( IBM DORS 32160 ). You can see from the
output in /var/adm/messages that we're already running such a Disk, but
there aren't any problems like that.
During booting the system we get the message:

----> corrupt label - wrong magic number <----

It is possible to use the disk, but why does this message occur ?
