    Failure in Solaris Initialization through VMWare Player

      Hello All,

      I have a Solaris 10 09/10 OS and I access it using Vmware player.
      There arised a need to increase swap space in solaris so i did it in the following manner :

      swap -l gave me the name of the file and its path
      it was

      I added a new swap file of 1 GB and activate it with swap -a.

      Now when I turn on the Vmware player it doesnt start.
      I am getting the following error :

      Mount: the state of dev/dsk/c0d0s7 is not okay and it was attempted to be mounted read/write

      c0d0s7 was also present in the same folder where i placed my new swap file. But i did not modify it at all
      c0d0s1 was the swap file and in the error the file is diff. it is c0d0s7.

      Need help on it.
