Thank you for quick response. FSCK a raw device works without problems.
Original question:
I would like to know if there is a problem with fsck Solaris 2.4 and 2.5
command that it will not recognize a partition greater than 2 Gbytes.

If there is a problem, which patch should I apply.
I would appreciate any information and will summarize.
