scsi drive addon

Adding another scsi drive, no name, it came with the instruction manual in japanese, so of no use. We need to format it, it only shows up as 14 gigs, when we know it is a 40 gig drive, but have no specs on the cyl, etc. Combing through faqs, one of my coworkers found a blurb that unix won't recognize msdos partitions, so we'll have to destroy teh dos partition on it first? We were under impression it is brand new, but assuming that it must come preformatted with some type of msdos partition on it.

Thanks for any help, these forums have been wonderful. Thank you!

try it

Hallo,kymberm

1. Connect the scsi disk to a workstation.

2. login as root

Enter the following commands
drvconfig
disks
format

Normally you can see all the disks on the system and choose the new one.
Example:

# format
Searching for disks...done


AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
0. c0t0d0 <SUN2.1G cyl 2733 alt 2 hd 19 sec 80> /io-unit@f,e0200000/sbi@0,0/dma@0,81000/esp@0,80000/sd@0,0
1. c0t1d0 <SUN2.1G cyl 2733 alt 2 hd 19 sec 80> /io-unit@f,e0200000/sbi@0,0/dma@0,81000/esp@0,80000/sd@1,0

Specify disk (enter its number):


I hope this helps you a little bit.
regards joerg
