IA: Disks With SCSI Controllers

To specify a slice on a disk with a SCSI controller on an IA based system, follow the naming convention shown in the following figure.


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

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

To indicate the entire Solaris fdisk partition, specify slice 2 (s2).
