Does anyone know if the Solaris 2.5/x86 disk driver can be put into a mode
where it addresses disks by real sector number, instead of mapping the start
of the Solaris fdisk partition to sector #0? For testing software on various
platforms, I have a system with several fdisk partitions and a different OS
on each partition. The Solaris partition doesn't really have enough spare
disk space, so I want to use the fmthard command (or equivalent) to point
an unused VTOC entry to a spare slice in a different fdisk partition.
Can this be done, and if so, how? (For comparison, UnixWare does allow this -
prtvtoc/edvtoc use physical disk sector numbers, and can use any offset and
length on the drive.) Thanks.
