Installation Fails When a Disk Needs to Be Relabeled (18496031)

When installing Oracle Solaris, the installation might fail when a disk needs to be relabeled from EFI (GPT) to VTOC (SMI).

The following error message is displayed:

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/vendor-packages/libdiskmgt/",
line 450, in descriptor_from_key (dtype, DESC_TYPE_MAP[dtype], name))

Workaround: Restart the installation process. To avoid the issue before beginning the installation process, relabel the disk to VTOC (SMI) manually by using the format command.

# format -L vtoc -d c2t1d0
Searching for disks...done selecting c2t1d0 [disk formatted] c2t1d0 is
labeled with VTOC successfully.
