What does s1 means on c4t0d4s1


Hi All,

I have presented a lun from storage with the lun address "0D" on the Ioscan output the lun is showing as /dev/dsk/c4t0d4s1
There is also another lun which is showing as /dev/dsk/c4t0d4

Another lun was added with the address "05" this is correctly showing on the ctd as /dev/dsk/c4t0d5.

Please let me know what does s1 means

isocan -func output :

==
disk 31 0/4/1/0.3.2.255.0.0.4 sdisk CLAIMED DEVICE E MC SYMMETRIX
/dev/dsk/c4t0d4 /dev/rdsk/c4t0d4
/dev/dsk/c4t0d4s1 /dev/rdsk/c4t0d4s1
disk 32 0/4/1/0.3.2.255.0.0.5 sdisk CLAIMED DEVICE E MC SYMMETRIX

Re: What does s1 means on c4t0d4s1

this is a "slice" (partition), normally used for integrity boot disks only.

Hope this helps!

c#t#d#s#

c = controllert = targetd = disks = slice
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: What does s1 means on c4t0d4s1

This is not a boot disk. I just created a device with the LUN address 0D and masked it to host. After masking this, is showing as s1

Before masking this device the disk visible to host was

/dev/dsk/c4t0d4 /dev/rdsk/c4t0d4

after the new device with address "0D" was added its showing as slice under above ctd

Thanks

Re: What does s1 means on c4t0d4s1

Have you checked the partition table on the device? This is done using the idisk command with -p option on the raw device (/dev/rdsk/c4t0d5). The output may help explain things.
