Error file system creation failed for / c0t0d0s0. . . any ideas?
Posted on 2004-08-16
Can any one tell me what these error messages mean and what to do to fix this problem? "Error file system creation failed for / c0t0d0s0.. could not check or create system critical file system. Could not update disk with new configuration."
I have an Ultra 5 server that had two 9 GB IDE disk installed (mirrored). After a power outage, the system would not boot to the primary or mirrored drive. To make a long story short, I have one disk installed now. When I attempt to installed OS 9 using suninstall, it gets to the part where it trys to configure disk c0t0d0.. create disk label (VTOC); create and check UFS file system; create / (c0t0d0s0).. Then I get an error "Error file system creation faile for / c0t0d0s0. . ."
Here's the output of the command " probe-ide"
