Sunfire 880 Disk Partitioning

Sunfire 880 Disk Partitioning

Post by Rod Philli » Sat, 06 Apr 2002 05:48:08



I have 2 880 servers that I have a question about disk partitioning.
I don't have a license for the Sun Solstice software, much less a
maintenance support.
(don't ask me, I didn't buy these much less spec them out).  By
default, the Solaris 8 install defined a root and swap slice (0 and 1
respectively) on the other five 36GB drives.  since they are not
mounted - I believe that I can reassign the space to other partitions.

Yes/No?  Please advise.

Sure.

And it wasn't the Solaris 8 install that put that partitioning on them,
that's just the way they come from Sun.

Yes, you can reassign them, so long as you ahven't mounted them, built
filesystems and the like, otherwise it will blow away all your data. use
the format command, reassign the partitions and label the disks, then
you are ready to go.

Here is the VTOC for the disks ...

I inserted carraige returns for clarity.  Disks are mirrored in pairs
from top to bottom,  you can see the symmetry.

1. USB Keyboard and mouse problem on Firewire 880

I have 2 880 servers with an USB switch for monitor/keyboard/mouse.
Everything works fine but for some reason the system do a some kind o
"check" for the keyboard and mouse. In this case if the switch is
switched on the first server I have this messager error on the second
server:

Nov  5 17:42:45 bwp01 usba: [ID 593373 kern.info]

at this point, the mouse and keyboard on the server don't work
anymore...

What can i do?
