Solaris 8 - DAT24eU

Howdy All,

I need to know what I have to do to edit the st.conf file for a new installation of my DAT24eU.
I could not find anything at hp.com regarding Solaris 8 and DAT24eU's.
I did find however an article for Solaris 5.x

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=lpg51069#P139_6256

Should I use the same info from 5.x?

On another site forum one poster posted this statement:
"On a
side note, Solaris 8 does not require an st.conf file to explain the HP
DDS3 drives. Found this out by trial and error."

Before I follow an unknown posters recommendations I thought I'd ask the professionals - so HP please advise me.

Re: Solaris 8 - DAT24eU

The documentation on UNIX integration with DDS & Solaris says:
"Use the switch settings recommended, and the drives should work well with Solaris 2.X without modifications to the kernel"

For switch settings, it lists:
2.6 and earlier:
SW3, SW4, SW7, SW8 OFF
2.7 and later
SW3 OFF (basically DDS default settings)
The journey IS the reward.
