Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) 2/04 Release Notes

Warnings May Occur When a File System Is Created (4189127)

One of the following warning messages might be displayed when a file system is created 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 that is being created does not map exactly to the space on the disk that is being used. This discrepancy 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 warning message.
