SUMMARY: Problem With "/var" in Solaris 2.6

I got a lot of responses to this one, but it turned out that I wasn't as
stupid as I thought I was; I had saved the vfstab created by the 2.6 upgrade,
so I got /var to mount without complaining.

The response I got from Ron Spillane was typical:

>Your entry for /var should look like this
>/dev/dsk/c0t2d0s1 /dev/rdsk/c0t2d0s1 /var ufs 1 no -
>When booting Solaris automatically mounts /, /usr & /var before it tries to
>mount any other partition including /opt.

Thanks to all who replied.


Original question:

> I've just installed Solaris 2.6 from scratch, and it works. However, the
> system tries to mount "/var" twice each time I boot. The system tries to
> fsck it twice, it mounts it once, then complains that /var is busy when it
> tries to mount it a second time
