Find a Fat32 partition under solaris 10 x86


I use Sun Solaris 10 under a x86 computer, and I want to mount a Fat32 partition who are stored in the same disk with the UFS filesystem.

But, before mount this partition, I need to know is location in /dev/dsk
Because there are a lot of file "c0t0d0" etc..., and I didn't find my Fat32 partition.

So, if somebody know a tool who can show me my disk with his partition, thanks.

kpartx [-a | -d | -l] [-v] wholedisk DESCRIPTION

-a Add partition mappings -r Readonly partition mappings -r Read-only partition mappings -d Delete partition mappings -u Update partition mappings -l List partition mappings that would be added -a -p set device name-partition number delimiter -f force creation of mappings; overrides 'no_partitions' feature -g force GUID partition table (GPT) -v Operate verbosely -s Sync mode. Don't return until the partitions are created EXAMPLE
To mount all the partitions in a raw disk image: kpartx -av disk.img This will output lines such as: loop3p1 : 0 20964762 /dev/loop3 63 The loop3p1 is the name of a device file under /dev/mapper which you can use to access the partition, for example to fsck it: fsck /dev/mapper/loop3p1 When you're done, you need to remove the devices: kpartx -d disk.img SEE ALSO
