Re: ioscan output shows 4 character address

This is pretty normal for an itanium boot disk.

There are 3 partitions on the disk (s1...3); 1 for EFI, 2 for HPUX, 3 for service tools.

 

 

And by the way, this is an  IR Volume - Integrated RAID, hardware RAID provided by the internal LSI SAS controller.


Hope this helps!

Re: ioscan output shows 4 character address

4 special device files, 1 for the disk itself, 1 for each partition

Hope this helps!
