Mounting disk at boot

Hi once more Smilie

Yesterday I reinstalled Solaris OS and now I can not mount pcfs HDD
SunOS unknown 5.10 Generic_142901-03 i86pc i386 i86pc

and what has been added in /etc/vfstab is
/dev/dsk/c1t0d0p1:c     -       /podaci -       pcfs    -       yes     rw

But as I said , my disk is not mounted at boot

Are you able to manually mount?
Have you tried this -> /dev/dsk/c1t0d0p1:1 instead of /dev/dsk/c1t0d0p1:c ?

if i look inside my vfstab:

#device         device          mount           FS      fsck    mount   mount
#to mount       to fsck         point           type    pass    at boot options

i have 7 colums. your entry has 8. maybe you should try something like this:

/dev/dsk/c1t0d0p1:c     -       /podaci       pcfs    -       yes     rw

You might be right.. maybe need to remove the hyphen "-" after /podaci ?Smilie
