My clients with remote /var (/var/adm) partitions won't boot.



Remote, but unshared filesystems, such as /, /var, /var/adm, etc.
should be mounted with the llock option. Solaris 2.x does this
automatically for remote /, but not for remote /var or /var/adm.
If you don't specify llock, the system will hang when it tries
to do stuff to the *[wu]tmp files, early in the boot process.
And lpsched may fail if it can't lock /var/spool/lp/SCHEDLOCK.


Workaround: Add the (undocumented) llock option to the mount
options for /var and/or /var/adm. (It should be fixed in
/etc/rcS.d/S70buildmnttab.sh)
