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.
