LUN allocation in solaris server

can anyone tell me how to track a new attached LUN in a solaris server??

Run format, the newly added LUN will be on top as they are not labeled

The best is to make a ls -ltr /dev/rdsk . The attached LUN will be at the bottom with the date.

The format command is not a good choice if you have lots of drives connected. It can be that the new presented LUN is #58 or so. It's not that the not labeled drives are on top.
