    Ok, first step, _stop_. Do not do any more wild attempts to fix /dev/u,
    you are likely to wipe out the data permanently.

    Next, post exact error messages, not your interpretation of them.

    Finally, us the results of:

    # hwconfig -h
    # divvy
    # mount -r /dev/u /u
    # grep -i "di*sk" /usr/adm/messages | uniq

    Ok, I'll add that to my giant mental database of why dbforums.com s.

    The command I gave,

    # grep -i "di*sk" /usr/adm/messages | uniq

    was supposed to eliminate duplicates. Guess it didn't work.

    Ok, there's my mistake -- should have had you pipe it through `sort -u`.
    But I wanted to see if the geometry had changed over time. Should have
    used:

    # grep -i "di*sk.*cyls=" /usr/adm/messages | uniq

    Anyway, geometry has been consistent over time. And anyway, you can
    access your root filesystem which is on the same partition, so the
    geometry must be correct.

    So.

    You have a real live corrupted filesystem. Something has overwritten
    the beginning of the filesystem, which includes the superblock.
    Recovering from that is not going to be easy. You will probably need
    the help of a consultant or a data recovery service.

    Here are three articles dredged out of the SCO Knowledge Base tarpit, of
    some degree of relevance. None will directly solve your problem.

    [url]http://stage.caldera.com/cgi-bin/ssl_reference?103182[/url]

    Check [url]http://pcunix.com/[/url] for possible consultants or recovery services.

    [url]ftp://ftp.armory.com/~rts/fsrd/[/url] contains a utility that may be of some
    help.
