SPARC: Disks With Bus-Oriented Controllers

To specify a slice on a disk with a bus-oriented controller (SCSI, for instance) on a SPARC based system, follow the naming convention shown in the following figure.


If you have only one controller on your system, w will always be 0.

For SCSI controllers, x is the target address as set by the switch on the back of the unit, and y is the logical unit number (LUN) of the drive attached to the target. If the disk has an embedded controller, y is usually 0.

To indicate the whole disk, specify slice 2 (s2).
