Error Code details
Severity: n/a 
Component: File System 

When vxdisksetup runs, the command usage information for the VxFS mount command may appear. This message is preceded by another message (V-3-26143). These two messages indicate that vxdisksetup did not check the device for valid file systems, but will continue to successfully initialize the device.

The vxdisksetup command calls the VxFS-specific mount command instead of calling the general operating system mount command. The vxdisksetup command calls the mount command with no arguments to identify if a device has an active file system on it. This call without arguments, however, is not supported with the VxFS-specific mount command.

This issue occurs if the PATH environment variable has /opt/VRTS/bin before the /bin directory where the mount command resides.

To prevent this issue, put /opt/VRTS/bin at the end of the PATH variable so that /bin is before it in the PATH list.
