After making changes to /etc/system file, the system is rebooted, but the changes are not being read in by the kernel. An examination of the /etc/system file shows that the new values are indeed in that file.

The metastat command output shows no issues with SVM metadevices being used as / . Mount command output shows the SVM metadevice is correctly mounted. No errors are reported in /var/adm/messages nor on the console.
