Solaris 7 5/99 Release Notes (SPARC Platform Edition)

Warnings May Occur When Creating a File System (4189127)

One of the following error messages may be displayed when creating a file system during installation:

Warning: inode blocks/cyl group (87) >= data blocks (63) in last
    cylinder group. This implies 1008 sector(s) cannot be allocated.


Warning: 1 sector(s) in last cylinder unallocated

The warning occurs when the size of the file system being created does not map exactly to the space on the disk being used. This can result in unused space on the disk that is not incorporated into the indicated file system. This unused space is not available for use by other file systems.

Workaround: Ignore the error message.
