Magic number

I just did a new install of Solaris 8 on a Sun Blade 100 with a 120 GB hard 
drive.  Everything seemed to go smoothly, but I continue to get a "warning:  
corrupt label: bad magic number" notice on every boot-up.  The system still 
starts up and runs fine, I've tried going into format and cheking the 
label/relabeling, and I see nothing wrong there either.  This disk likely 
had something else on it prior to the install (like Windows most likely).

Is there something I'm missing here, that either the message is sometimes 
"normal" or that there's something else I need to fix?  Also, the message 
doesn't show up in the syslog - just in the console output during boot.

thanks!

You probably have an unused harddisk in the system; a harddisk
which hasn't been formatted, as you slready expected.

Run "format" and add a label after you've verified that it isn't in
used.

Nope, I just have a single hard drive in there - the one Solaris is 
installed on.  And I have run "format" on that drive to check/reset the 
label.

Interesting; no USB stick?  Have you tried "format -e"?  Something in
the CD?

Nothing in USB except for keyboard/mouse, and nothing in CD drive.  Only 
the one hard drive in the system.  "format -e" shows just disk 0, formatted 
and no defect list.

Does disk0 include existing partitions (slices) that were used
previously but are unused now?

Whatever was on it before (probably NTFS) should have been destroyed.

Okay. One other guess. Is the boot PROM booting to some disk
that doesn't actually exist? I'm thinking of an alternate boot device.

Thanks,

What does "fdisk -n -W - /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0" show?

I've seen this error message on non-Sun disks--especially Compaq spares,
but those usually wouldn't boot cleanly either.

What about doing a devfsadm -Cv to clear out any dead device entries?

Ok, so I built another Blade 100 right next to it, same Solaris 8 
install, using an 80 GB hard drive.  There are no magic number warnings 
with this one.  Comparing a portion of dmesg output between the two, I 
find the following...

My uneducated perusal makes me wonder what that duplicate device node 
message actually means and if that's what's causing the magic number 
issue.  Anyone?

That rings a bell here as well. Many compaq drives have a non standard diags
partion on the disk, which may confuse or not be seen by the sun format 
utility.

Iirc, deleting the partition table from M/soft dos (fdisk) and reformatting
fixes the problem. Perhaps a linux box would work as well...

What is the exact message and and what can you find in the
kernel message file?

Are you perhaps trying to mount another slice and that doesn't work?
(What is in /etc/vfsatab)?

Check /etc/path_to_inst and compare between the two systems.

I think you have some device level cruft and the previous advice about
running devfsadm -C is good advice.

I've started capturing output from all the debugging suggestions here:

    	http://www.slor.net/sun/blades/

Hopefully that may help keep things somewhat organized.  The only 
differences I know of between the two systems are memory stick config, disk 
size, and a SCSI card installed in the "good" machine.  Only suggestion 
I've see thus far that I haven't actually tried, I think, is wiping the 
entire partition table again via Linux and reinstalling.  Is that necessary 
at this point?

Problem of random number block in Simulink
