Understanding an iostat entry

Hi all,
I'm working on a solaris server.
there are no any hardware issue.
but I get the following isostat output:


Code:
# iostat -en
  ---- errors --- 
  s/w h/w trn tot device
    0   0   0   0 c0t5000CCA012AB0081d0

    0   1   0   1 rmt/0
    0   0   0   0 Sdp031:vold(pid679)

I though that I had 2 faulty devices, but in iostat -En, these devices are Virtual.


Code:

I dont't understand these entries and need to know if it is possible to remove these entries from iostat.

Thx

These are not issues, and will be a side effect of what ever software you are using to virtualise (and hence is virtualising the CDROM and Floppy drives, IMHO.

A reboot is the easiest way to clear these errors - otherwise you'll need to hassle with a debugger, such as:
