Operating Systems SCO SCO OS 6 Driver for LSIL SAS1064E Raid Controller Post 303039604 by hicksd8 on Thursday 10th of October 2019 05:51:09 AM
Phew! It's been a long time since I did this but AFAIR it goes like this for a configuration like you are trying to achieve (boot from add-in disk in order to see data on an old controller).

Quote:
I managed to download the OpenServer 6.0 enterprise server installation media and the MPT driver and install it.
So you have installed the RAID controller driver???? How did you do that?? What command did you use?

From memory, I think it must be either.......

Code:
# custom

or

Code:
# scoadmin

or

Code:
# mkdev hd         <- This one might work in any case.

Now, to build such a configuration you would install SCO O/S on the new disk (which you have done) and then insert the RAID controller (okay it's already in there). You would then need to:
1. Run one of the above commands to add the RAID controller driver to the kernel.
2. Relink the kernel, say 'Y' to rebuild the boot environment, and reboot.
3. Run the same command AGAIN to add the disk(s) attached to the RAID controller into the kernel configuration. This will ask for stuff like bus# and unit# (like you would for a SCSI controller - unit# being SCSI ID, etc).
4. Relink the kernel AGAIN, say 'Y' to rebuild the boot environment AGAIN, and reboot AGAIN.
5. Now the device node (/dev/<whatever> should be there and the mount command is no different to any other disk.

6. If you configure the disk(s) wrongly you can run the command yet again to unconfigure, relink, and reboot. Then do it correctly.

I hope that helps. Perhaps you have installed the RAID driver, stopped there and not configured any disk(s)??????

As I said, this is all from memory. Another member, expert at SCO (jgt) might chip in and confirm whether I'm right or wrong.

Good luck. I'm sure you'll get there.

CFREE(3)						     Linux Programmer's Manual							  CFREE(3)

NAME
cfree - free allocated memory SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h> /* In SunOS 4 */ int cfree(void *ptr); /* In glibc or FreeBSD libcompat */ void cfree(void *ptr); /* In SCO OpenServer */ void cfree(char *ptr, unsigned num, unsigned size); /* In Solaris watchmalloc.so.1 */ void cfree(void *ptr, size_t nelem, size_t elsize); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): cfree(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
This function should never be used. Use free(3) instead. 1-arg cfree In glibc, the function cfree() is a synonym for free(3), "added for compatibility with SunOS". Other systems have other functions with this name. The declaration is sometimes in <stdlib.h> and sometimes in <malloc.h>. 3-arg cfree Some SCO and Solaris versions have malloc libraries with a 3-argument cfree(), apparently as an analog to calloc(3). If you need it while porting something, add #define cfree(p, n, s) free((p)) to your file. A frequently asked question is "Can I use free(3) to free memory allocated with calloc(3), or do I need cfree()?" Answer: use free(3). An SCO manual writes: "The cfree routine is provided for compliance to the iBCSe2 standard and simply calls free. The num and size argu- ments to cfree are not used." RETURN VALUE
The SunOS version of cfree() (which is a synonym for free(3)) returns 1 on success and 0 on failure. In case of error, errno is set to EINVAL: the value of ptr was not a pointer to a block previously allocated by one of the routines in the malloc(3) family. CONFORMING TO
The 3-argument version of cfree() as used by SCO conforms to the iBCSe2 standard: Intel386 Binary Compatibility Specification, Edition 2. SEE ALSO
