Solved: Error on labeling the disk

You may get below error when you are trying to label a new disk in Solaris.

format> la
 WARNING - This disk may be in use by an application that has
 modified the fdisk table. Ensure that this disk is
 not currently in use before proceeding to use fdisk.


Before you proceed for the solution ensure that this is the correct disk which you want to label.

  • Once you are sure about the correct disk, select the disk from the format menu.
  • Before you try labeling the disk execute “fdisk” while in format menu.
format> fdisk
 No fdisk table exists. The default partition for the disk is:

a 100% "SOLARIS System" partition

Type "y" to accept the default partition, otherwise type "n" to edit the
 partition table.
  • Once you press “y” it will accept the default disk layout.
  • Now you can also change the disk layout format as per your requirement and finally label the disk.

If you are getting above error while running the docker commands in Docker Quickstart Terminal then you can have one of the listed problem.

  • The docker deamon is not running.
  • The docker host machine itself is down.
  • Required configuration file is missing.

First check that the host machine is up and the configuration file is present at its location. Once you are sure both the above things are ok, in that case easiest way to get rid of this issue is to open the Docker Quickstart Terminal by selecting “Run as Administrator” .  It will take some time to start but let it complete and you should be back in business soon.
