opt filesystem won't mount automatically on reboot

I was wondering if anyone has run into an issue with a filesystem not mounting on a reboot on Solaris with Volume Manager.

I've been handed a Sunfire V880 w/ Solaris 9 Generic_112233-12 and Volume Manager 4.0.  The file system in question are on local disk and are ufs.  It is encapsulated.

The /opt filesystem is set to mount automatically on reboot in the /etc/vfstab, however when the system comes it doesn't mount and doesn't log any errors to /var/adm/messages.

The stanza in our vfstab file is:
/dev/vx/dsk/bootdg/opt  /dev/vx/rdsk/bootdg/opt /opt    ufs     2       yes     -

Let me know if I can provide further detail.

what happens when you say "mountall" and in another window do tail -f /var/adm/messages and see what is happening

Please provide the output of 'vxdisk list' command. As it seems to me you have no veritas 'opt' disk in 'bootdg' disk group.
Also you may perform "ls -al /dev/vx/rdsk/bootdg/opt' and see does it exist.
Next, very often bug, check that you have all 'TAB's (not spaces) between fields in vfstab.
