When a back end is exported to a domain as a full disk, it appears in that domain as a regular disk with eight slices (s0 to s7). This type of disk is visible with the format(1M) command. The disk's partition table can be changed using either the fmthard or format command.
A full disk is also visible to the OS installation software and can be selected as a disk onto which the OS can be installed.
Any back end can be exported as a full disk except physical disk slices that can be exported only as single-slice disks.
