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.
