mount in vfstab

In the end of /etc/vfstab file :
/dev/md/dsk/d30 /dev/md/dsk/d30 /odb0   ufs     no      no      -
/dev/md/dsk/d40 /dev/md/dsk/d40 /odb1   ufs     no      no      -

After boot filesystems /odb0 and /odb1 don't mount.
Also they don't mount after comand mount -a

But if i'm enter comands
# mount /odb0
# mount /odb1

All work ! Why ? I need setup automount odb filesystems with /etc/vfstab

Those are not very good entries. Read "man vfstab".

/dev/md/dsk/d30 /dev/md/rdsk/d30 /odb0   ufs     2      yes      -
/dev/md/dsk/d40 /dev/md/rdsk/d40 /odb1   ufs     2      yes      -

The second filename needs to a raw device. After the type (ufs) comes the fsck pass number. I am just guessing with "2", but that is better than your pass "no". Finally we have a "yes or no", you picked "no"... that means do not mount at boot. Switch that to "yes" to get what you want.
