Unhappy Format command shows "Cannot get current directory - I/O error"


Hi,
There was this silly mistake today. With a mounted slice, c1t0d0s3 as /u01, I resized the slice. After exiting from fomatting and labeling, when I tried format again, it now shows: Cannot get current directory - I/O error and exits.


I 'newfs'ed the slice. So data is not retrievable. What to do now?
OS is Solaris 10 8/07 s10s_u4wos_12b SPARC.


Someone please help!!!

Problem resolved.
Reboot did the trick. I think fsck would have cleared it too. Anyway, system is healthy.
