EFI Disk labels on 3510 raid array

Hi Peeps,
Can anyone help me an EFI lablel on a 3510 raid array that I cannot get rid of, format -e and label just asks you if you want to label it. Want an SMI label writing to it.

Anyone got any ideas on how to remove the EFI label?

Thanks in advance

which solaris version? normally, if you say label, the format tool
will ask which label you want, select SMI and let the tool rewrite
to teh disk.

sorted thanks lowbyte. Apparently because it was over a TB, it automatically gives it an EFI label. Annoying thing was it kept putting /usr tags on the slices as I was trying to carve it up Smilie
