Error Code details
Severity: n/a 
Component: File System 
insufficient number of arguments

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 message is followed by another message (V-3-20147) displaying the command usage information for the VxFS mount command. These two messages indicate that vxdisksetup did not check the device for valid file systems, but will continue to successfully initialize the device.

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.
