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?

Thanks,

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.

Let us know.

I did that when suggested.  No change.

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?

Magic Number error
Hello - I was under the impression magic number errors (e.g. "0509-103 - The module has an invalid magic number) indicated a compile problem or issue with being the wrong version for your OS.

bad magic number
Hi there I need to make some extensions to an applet I have (packaged as a jar), and need to use a few other 3rd party jar files. (1) Is it possible to package these extra jar files inside my jar file; or do I need to unjar the other jars and include the class files in my jar. (2) What does "bad magic number" mean? I get this message in the java console when I try to run my applet. The applet works fine without the extra classes, but if I try to include them, I get the bad magic number message. Oddly enough the message says my main applet class has a bad magic number - yet I know ...

Magic Numbers in Parametric Software

One of the solutions for this is to stuff parts into sub assemblies.

Are MAGIC numbers always bad?
Are MAGIC numbers always bad? Using magic numbers (constant numbers) in programs are generally considered a bad programming practice, and it's recommended that to define constants in single, visible place in a header file. My question is that is there any situation where using magic numbers is not necessarily a bad thing? lets say that we want to initialize some private variables in a class using some constant default numbers, can we initialize them directly using magic numbers? should we still define those constants in a header file? If we define them in a header file, they become availa...

Apparent magic number problem
I have a program that I wish to run in both Python 2.7 and Python 3.2 The program runs correctly under each version, but it runs more slowly under 3.2. This is probably due to the fact that the .pyc file is created for the Python 2.7 execution. When Python 3.2 is run it fails to create a new .pyc file and if the 2.7 ..pyc is offered directly a magic number problem is reported. Is there a bug here? it seems to me that the Magic Number exception should lead to a new compile of the program. Colin W. On Fri, 08 Mar 2013 19:48:28 -0500, Colin J. Williams wrote: > I h...

Numbers to strings to numbers again
I think I an getting the hang of this language, but I ran into a puzzler. I have a large array of data objects initialized at onLoad() time in an HTML page. I send them in as numbers. I gather that things are strings unless specifically made otherwise. I do a search on the data, which is essentially a loop of string compares. That works fine. So I want to optimize a little bit, and do some basic numeric comparisons before I start the linear search. I did not use parseInt() or parseFloat(), I just used the str - 0 trick to force type conversion. However, something is not working. ...

Removing magic numbers from code
I am trying to eliminate 'magic numbers' or hard-coded values in a program. In cases of basic recoding of variables, the most intuitive way to do this is by applying formats. In other cases where the values are being used to drive logic, it seems to make more sense to store the values as macro variables. Below is one approach to storing these values in a single data set, and passing the value to variables when needed. Given the general nature to the problem, I would like to know if better solutions or approaches exist (perhaps not involving macro variables). When creating macro variabl...
