Yes, without patches 2TB is max for 1.4.7.

What file system type on Solaris? I suspect ufs.

That could be a Solaris specific behaviour. I would test with
zfs+namei or if that not works with ufs+namei and hope the problem

Probably. Convert your world to namei and get rid of the special fsck.
Namei type partitions can run the OS supplied file system utilities.
