Full Discussion: Move a disk to Sol. 2.6
Special Forums Hardware Filesystems, Disks and Memory Move a disk to Sol. 2.6 Post 15189 by sunshine on Monday 11th of February 2002 05:25:04 PM
I don't have the old system anymore. One of the 2 old drives was never used, however, the filesystem was mountable (I verified that before removing it). The other one was automatically mounted during startup. The old system was not running any database type program nor did it have any volume management software (Veritas) installed on it.

I am trying to avoid doing a format and restore on these drives though I do have a backup tape if format is the only solution.

Move hard disk to another SCSI host

I was using an external SCSI disk on a Sun Ultra60 (Solaris 7) as the boot device. It was labelled c1t0d0. I then moved it into the internal removable mounts and it should become c0t0d0, but it apparently didn't change properly. When the machine boots, it gets host information from the disk... (2 Replies)

Disk free space planning for Sol 10 LU

I'm getting ready to start a LU from Sol 9 to Solaris 10. I want to ensure that I have enough disk space for future upgrades. What I don't know is what free space Solaris requires. If I have 10GB of free space in /opt, will Solaris 10 use that for a LU? Or, do I need to allocate 10GB of space... (5 Replies)

NAME
tapeinfo - report SCSI tape device info SYNOPSIS
tapeinfo -f <scsi-generic-device> DESCRIPTION
The tapeinfo command reads various information from SCSI tape drives that is not generally available via most vendors' tape drivers. It issues raw commands directly to the tape drive, using either the operating system's SCSI generic device ( e.g. /dev/sg0 on Linux, /dev/pass0 on FreeBSD) or the raw SCSI I/O ioctl on a tape device on some operating systems. One good time to use 'tapeinfo' is immediately after a tape i/o operation has failed. On tape drives that support HP's 'tapealert' API, 'tapeinfo' will report a more exact description of what went wrong. Do be aware that 'tapeinfo' is not a substitute for your operating system's own 'mt' or similar tape driver control program. It is intended to supplement, not replace, programs like 'mt' that access your operating system's tape driver in order to report or set information. OPTIONS
The first argument, given following -f , is the SCSI generic device corresponding to your tape drive. Consult your operating system's doc- umentation for more information (for example, under Linux these are generally start at /dev/sg0 under FreeBSD these start at /dev/pass0). Under FreeBSD, 'camcontrol devlist' will tell you what SCSI devices you have, along with which 'pass' device controls them. Under Linux, "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" will tell you what SCSI devices you have. BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
This program has only been tested on Linux with a limited number of tape drives (HP DDS4, Seagate AIT). AVAILABILITY
tapeinfo is currently being maintained by Eric Lee Green <eric@badtux.org> formerly of Enhanced Software Technologies Inc. The 'mtx' home page is http://mtx.sourceforge.net and the actual code is currently available there and via CVS from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mtx/ . SEE ALSO
