  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • During mksysb restore one may receive this error:
    
        "cannot create /var/adm/ras/bi.log"
    
    That's because some files on var/adm are encrypted.
    
    Defect 837171 is included in instfix.i, but using -i in
    efsenable still gets illegal option:
    
    + /usr/sbin/efsenable -a -i
    /usr/sbin/efsenable: illegal option -- i
    
    That's because 'i' is not included in
    getopt(argc, argv, "vk:f:m:u:e:d:paq?").
