Hello
I have a client who has an old sun blade system running Soalris 8.
A few days ago he rebooted his system.

Please notice the following boot messages regarding the volume manager

When I type metastat, I get okay status in all mirrors and submirrors. Metadb also returns no errors.
Yet I have seen similar boot messages in failed Solaris 9 servers. What can you tell me regarding these messages.
Should they be the cause for worry or any proactive action?
I have taken a full flar backup. What should I tell to my client regarding these messages.
Thank you

    Hi,

    You can ignore them.

    http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-72-1007629.1-1


    These are not errors. These are informational (NOTICE) messages
    telling you that the driver underlying your metadevices does not
    support the B_FAILFAST option and, as a result, that capability will
    not be active for speedier recovery. There is no way to disable these
    messages.
