TRUE64 Compaq UNIX ver.5.0A system managers and admins!
Could someone point me the URL which describes HOW IT IS POSSIBLE to adjust SYSTEM (TRUE64
Compaq UNIX ver.5.0A) parameters to manage correctly HARD DRIVES with blocksize different
then 512 bytes?
I wish to use magneto-optical device FUJITSU MCD3130SS with our Alpha. This device shows (to
the TRUE64 Compaq UNIX ver.5.0A system) that the physical sector size is 2048 bytes. But
the system ignores that and counts the device sector size is 512 bytes (default value).
I am almost sure that it is possible to adjust that, because the system uses 2K sector size
for CD-ROM devices, but I don't know HOW. I have tried to put somethings in /etc/ddr.dbase
and compile it and was not lucky.
I have tried to boot from that device and SRM console says:
the sector size of device is not 512.... But sector size of CD-ROM device is the same (2K)
and I could boot from it.
With best wishes
