New disk formatting: "No disks found!"

New disk formatting: "No disks found!"

Hi all.

I've connected a new disk on my Solaris 2.6 box.  (see SD4,  SCSI ID is set
to 4 too)

dmesg says:

sd1 at esp0: target 1 lun 0
sd1 is

        <SUN0535 cyl 1866 alt 2 hd 7 sec 80>
sd3 at esp0: target 3 lun 0
sd3 is

        <SUN1.05 cyl 2036 alt 2 hd 14 sec 72>
sd4 at esp0: target 4 lun 0
sd4 is

WARNING:

 (sd4):
        corrupt label - wrong magic number

        Vendor 'QUANTUM', product 'FIREBALL1080S', 2134305 512 byte blocks
sd6 at esp0: target 6 lun 0
sd6 is

I created links in /dev/rdsk and /dev/dsk to the apropriate /devices file as
it is suggested in man page for mknod.  I did it as it is done for sd3 and
sd1.

Now when I try to format it.  It complains "No disks found!"

Any pointers?

Try booting with

boot -r

It should create all the neccessary device entries

Try running "format" from the directory where "format.dat" lives
(usually /etc). Truss it to see where it looks for "format.dat".

1. E250 internal disks: "Sun" disk vs "generic" Seagate disk

"Sun" disk:
  5404177-01 (printed on handle, what number this is?)
  Seagate number: ST318404LC

"generic" disk:
  Seagate number: ST318405LC

The format shows:

# format
Searching for disks...done

AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
       0. c0t0d0 <SUN9.0G cyl 4924 alt 2 hd 27 sec 133>

       1. c0t8d0 <SUN9.0G cyl 4924 alt 2 hd 27 sec 133>

       2. c0t9d0 <SEAGATE-ST318405LC-5063 cyl 18902 alt 2 hd 4 sec 474>

They both work, but with the generic disk, the disk indicator
light inside E250 is not lit. Do you know why and what should
I do (besides buying Sun disks) to make the light lit? The
generic disk is much cheaper (Sun disks cost about $800).

Thanks.
