Summary 2 Help: Corrupt label wrong magic number

Date: Wed Oct 13 1999 - 11:33:23 CDT

I guess I should have waited a little while before I sent out my first
summary. The correct suggestion was to not use the first cylinder "0" for
raw devices. Solaris writes
the disk label to this cylinder and something like Sybase or any application
(or someone like me) that does not know that this cylinder should not be
used overwrites the label. You do not have this problem if you make a
filesystem starting with cylinder 0 because the mkfs/newfs commands know not
to use the cylinder 0. Thanks to the following for the correct suggestions:

Leonard, Roger
