1. Problems adding 2nd (SCSI) hd (Solaris 2.6 x86)
I have the x86 implementation of Solaris 2.6 on a system which has a 2GB
SCSI hd, and comes fitted with the Buslogic BT 946-C host adapter. I got
myself a 9.1 GB Western Digital SCSI drive (WDE9100-0003) to serve as a
second hard drive. The device is recognized without a hitch, but when I
go to assign it to Solaris, the results are disastrous. Here's what I
a) I got the /etc/format.dat specs from WD;
b) I invoked ``format'', selected the second (new) drive and described
it as conforming to the newly added entry in the format.dat file;
c) I chose the fdisk option, created three ``Solaris'' partitions, each
equaling 30% of capacity;
d) I invoked ``format'' after saving the fdisk settings, which set off,
giving the impression that it had commenced its work, but failed after
10 seconds with the message ``format failed''. What's worse is that I
cannot anything with the drive anymore. I tried invoking fdisk again,
when the message it responds with is:
fdisk: Device (/dev/dsk/c0t4d0p0) cannot be opened.
Bad read of fdisk partition. Status: ffffffff
Cannot read fdisk partition information.
No fdisk Solaris partition found.
What am I doing wrong? I called up the PC vendor (Micron), who assures
me that the drive is supported by the host adapter. What else, assuming
I can clear this hurdle (even if it means getting another hd and
starting from scratch), do I need to do in order to install the second
drive and create the three partitions/filesystems on it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
