format.dat or "format" info for hp c2490a-300 disk

Post by William Davena » Tue, 11 Oct 1994 13:36:14



Hi,

I want to attach the above mentioned disk to my Sun sparc 10
running 4.1.3.1.  The disk was sorta dumped in my lap.
(No body tells me anything around here.)  Anyway, the little
hardware book that came with it doesn't really tell me what
I need to know as near as I can figure out.  So if one
of you kind souls could supply me with a format.dat for it
or equivalently tell me what I should tell format I would
appreciate it.  Thanks.

Specifically, information regarding the various scsi
probing programs available at ftp.cdf.toronto.edu:/pub
and for the following ...

        : ncyl = 2159 : acyl = 2 : pcyl = 2582 \
        : nhead = 18 : nsect = 107 \
