Hi all,

Thanks! to everyone who replied... to my question below:

Lots of them have suggested that I should go ahead re-label the disk.
I did that and then I won't be able to run reboot or shutdown down the
I end up restore entire system disk (/, /usr and /var).


Original question:
Hi all,

I am having a problem with system disk that contains (root, swap,
/usr, /var).
It's saying that corrupted label, wrong magic number and when I try to
usfdump commaand out of it. it said io/error. When I try to run
format and
select the disk, it prompt for creating a new label?

Is anyone knows, how to recover it while the system is up and running.
and without rebooting the system.
