UFS File System Issue

SPARC: Do Not Create a UFS File System on VxVM Volumes Greater Than 2 Tbytes in Size

If you attempt to create a UFS file system on a Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) volume that is of 2 Tbytes or greater, you produce an error state. The outcome is a file system that is the size of the VxVM volume modulo 2 Tbytes. For example, a VxVM volume 8.4 Tbytes in size would produce a .4 Tbyte file system.

No warning message is displayed.

Workaround: None.
