The Solaris update you are running is probably too old.
What says
cat /etc/release

So I'm possibly way off, as it's the blind leading the blind in my office. @Jilliagre, release is Solaris 10 11/06 s10_u3wos_10 x86

What I have attempted to do (with no avail), was utilize
, and then my thinking was as I am unsure about actually swapping out SATA HDDs within the system itself, to somehow utilize the USB components, and grab a SATA to USB cable to help transfer the data from the drives when they come in.

However, when I do the command prtpart the only file system that shows up is the ff/ff/ff system which I am assuming is the inherent file system. I can physically see the device is connected when I run cfgadm. And have even tried mounting using:

mount -F ntfs /dev/dsk/usb4/5.1 /mnt (which doesn't seem to work at all)

Anyway, am I totally wrong for thinking this could work? Am I not thinking through things enough. I have looked through the documentation on mounting drives and reading USB devices on the Sun site.

Again, any help or guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
