Running growfs may return the message "failed to disable logging" on /var or other filesystems if filesystem logging cannot be disabled. When this happens, lockfs will also return an error.
We will use an example in which /dev/md/dsk/d50 is mounted on /var in this article.
failed to disable logging
# /usr/sbin/lockfs -w /var
/var: Device busy
