You should be able to select c9t4d0 in 'format' and print its partition (slices).

If you can do that then you can attempt to 'fsck' those filesystems,

for example:

# fsck /dev/rdsk/c9t4d0s0

If you re-slice, label and newfs you will wipe-out the data!!!!!

Try to just 'fsck' and then 'mount' the LUN.

If within 'format' you:

Select the NetApp Lun c9t4d0

Enter option 'p'

Enter option 'p' (again)

What output do you get? Does it output a slice table?

DON'T use 'format' to change anything on the disk at this time. Just 'Quit' out.

I beleive should be /dev/dsk/c9t4d0s6....

Yes, well that proves that the LUN is intact and perfectly readable.

Only you will know what these slices are. You should have the relevant filesystem locations documented. However, yes, slice 6 is the largest and certainly looks relevant so I would attempt to 'fsck' that device:

# fsck -n /dev/rdsk/c9t4d0s6

As always use the -n (no changes to be made) switch initially to explore what damage, if any, there is. If you only get a few problems flagged then run again without the -n and correct them when asked.

Slice 2 on Solaris always represents the whole disk and you should NEVER try to do anything with that.

You are welcome.

Be aware that when you try to mount c9t4d0s6 is might complain that the device (e.g. /dev/dsk/c9t4d0s6) does not exist on the root filesystem you are booted from. If so we'll need to get the system to create the required device nodes, which we can do later.

You might also need to create mount points (i.e. top level directories) using mkdir if they are also not there already.

It all depends on whether your root disk is or is not an exactly copy from the old system. Let's see how it goes.

EDIT: Okay I see that you already successfully mounted c9t4d0s6. Looking good!
