After adding a Quantum Atlas II XP34550S 4.5 HD to a
SCSI-2 chain on a SPARC 10 with Solaris 2.5.1
and doing a reconfiguration boot the device is
not listed in the format menu. 'scsiinfo' lists
the device as present in the chain at id 4.
Bear in mind that the OS is Solaris 2.5.1 on a SPARC 10.
In the directory
there should have been the files:
sd@4,0:a sd@4,0:c sd@4,0:e sd@4,0:g
sd@4,0:a,raw sd@4,0:c,raw sd@4,0:e,raw sd@4,0:g,raw
sd@4,0:b sd@4,0:d sd@4,0:f sd@4,0:h
sd@4,0:b,raw sd@4,0:d,raw sd@4,0:f,raw sd@4,0:h,raw
because the disk is SCSI ID 4.
When I did a reconfiguration boot, and then looking at the following
/dev/dsk/ and /dev/rdsk/
c0t4d0s0 c0t4d0s2 c0t4d0s4 c0t4d0s6
c0t4d0s1 c0t4d0s3 c0t4d0s5 c0t4d0s7
In /dev/dsk/ the above files are links to sd@4,0:[a-h] in
In /dev/rdsk/ the above files are links to sd@4,0:[a-h],raw in
This is correct behavior, except the files sd@4,0:[a-h][,raw]
were missing and existed as hidden files ..sd@4,0:[a-h][,raw].
I renamed these to sd@4,0:[a-h][,raw] and suddenly I could
see the Quantum disk in the format menu.
I partitioned it and made a new file system in a matter of minutes and
now it is chugging away quite merrily.
