Solaris 9 and Lacie Bigger disk

Post by EJK » Sat, 04 Jun 2005 04:57:51



I have a V88 with Solaris 9 installed. We wanted t attach a Lacie 1Tb
usb external drive to it. The system recognizes the unit when I run a
format command but it says that it is an unknown disk type. It shows up
in the /dev/dsk as :
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s0 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s1 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s2 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s3 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s4 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s5 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s6 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          55 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s7 ->

and /dev/rdsk systems as:

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s1 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s2 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s3 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s4 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s5 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s6 ->

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          59 Sep 20  2004 c4t0d0s7 ->

but when I run format I see:

When I attempt to config it manually it fails every time.
What do I do next? ... /

 
 
 

1. How to spin-down a Lacie 500GB Big Disk Extreme

I have the Lacie disk connected via firewire, and running Linux 10.2
(formatted as hfs+)  .When connected to a Mac, the hard-drive spins
down or goes idle when not in use.  This is not the case when using
Linux.  All other hard-drive use is fine, mounting the drive is no
problem.

Has anyone been about to achieve the same behaviour when using a Lacie
disk on Linux?
