POST says two drives installed. When taking a look at the last entry at /var/adm/messages though, it tells me a different thing?

Looks like the second drive is installed twice???
Post the contents of /etc/conf/cf.d/mscsi

This is the boot disk (

%disk - - - type=S ha=0 id=0 lun=1 bus=0 ht=mdac
%Sdsk - - - cyls=1024 hds=128 secs=32 fts=sdb

This is the secondary disk
%disk - - - type=S ha=0 id=1 lun=1 bus=0 ht=mdac
%Sdsk - - - cyls=8750 hds=128 secs=32 fts=sdb
%disk - - - type=S ha=0 id=1 lun=1 bus=0 ht=mdac
%Sdsk - - - cyls=8750 hds=128 secs=32 fts=sdb

I don't think that it should print twice, but I no longer have a machine with the same config to look at.



When you add a disk, you must run mkdev hd twice.
The first time the drive is added to the kernel, the second, fdisk and divvy is run, you have to reboot between invocations.

wd Srom 1 0 0 0 # CD drive
mdac Sdsk 0 0 1 0 # Boot Disk
mdac Sdsk 0 1 0 0 # delete this one
alad Stp 0 2 0 0 # tape drive

Adaptec controller with SCSI id 10
mdac Sdsk 0 10 0 1 #delete this one
mdac Sdsk 0 1 1 0 #this is the secondary drive

Edit this file with a text editor, and relink the kernel, and reboot.

Run mkdev hd and enter the same data for mdac 0 1 1 0
This should start fdisk and divvy.

I think I did it wrong, again. Here were the results:

What is the LUN of this device?
Press <Return> to use the default: 0
Select 0-7, or h for help, or q to quit: 0

You are about to add the following SCSI device:

Host
Adapter Adapter
Type Device Number ID LUN BUS
----------------------------------------------
mdac Sdsk 0 1 0 1

Update SCSI configuration? (y/n) y

The SCSI configuration file has been updated.
\nA new kernel must be built and rebooted before disk configuration can continue
. Would you like to relink at this time? (y/n) \c
y

The UNIX Operating System will now be rebuilt.
This will take a few minutes. Please wait.

Root for this system build is /
idmkreg: can not locate or open 'Sdsk/device.dat'

deleted the one in red & rebuilt the kernel.....tried this.....but this is pointing to a specific disk (in red)??

Enter the prefix of the SCSI host adapter that supports this device
or press <Return> for the default: 'mdac'
Enter h for a list of host adapters or enter q to quit:

Which 'mdac' SCSI host adapter supports this device?
Select 0-4, or enter q to quit: 0

The Host Adapter parameters will be automatically configured

What SCSI Bus is this device attached to?
Press <Return> to use the default:0
Select 0-n, or h for help, or q to quit: 0

What is the Target ID for this device?
Select 0-15, or h for help, or q to quit: 1

What is the LUN of this device?
Press <Return> to use the default: 0
Select 0-7, or h for help, or q to quit: 1
\nDisk already configured as disk number 1 (/dev/dsk/1s0)
\nDuring installation you may choose to overwrite all
or part of the present contents of your hard disk.
\nDo you wish to continue? (y/n) \c

I don't know if this is the right one? Would this be my new 17GB hard drive that I need?? Appreciate more. Thanks.

That's it, create one new HTFS partition, then follow the instructions in scoadmin->filesystems to mount.

Code:

Thanks. I now want to remove the previous mount point /u1 from the system. How do I do it? I tried to define the new drive as /u1, got a message instead of /u1 in use. I have already removed the u1 directory. Am I missing something? Appreciate more. Thanks.
