Re: Mount disarray

Henry,

What kind of disk array are you mounting to your system, and what kind of system are you trying to connect it to?

If you can provide more specific information (model #'s, connection type, o/s version) we'll see if we can help.

Best Regards,

Dave

Re: Mount disarray

Is this a NAS of SAN?
Is this the STORAGEarray from SUN?

Re: Mount disarray

You best option is to use DiskSuite (by Sun) or one of the Veritas Volume Manager/File Manager products.

By default, Solaris 2.5 does not come with these products - they are cost products. If you have a Sun STORAGEarray then you will have at least the Veritas product to work with. If you have none of the above then Solaris uses a hard partition scheme to manage disks. You can setup multiple filesystems using all disks but they will not be mirrorred or striped (no RAID).

Assuming Veritas, the following URL link has all kinds of info concerning the use of the Veritas product(s) on Solaris.

Re: Mount disarray

Thank you Rick for your advise. It is possible for Solstice Disksuite 4.0 to perform the same job? I have tried using it.. but keep running into problem, like slice overlap, even after I have partitioned them using the format option..

How should I go about doing it?

Thank you for your kind advise.
