Format of Device Names for Devices Without a Volume Manager

If you are not using a volume manager, use the appropriate format for the name of the underlying storage device. The format to use depends on the type of storage device as follows:

  • For block devices: /dev/global/dsk/dDsS

  • For raw devices: /dev/global/rdsk/dDsS

The replaceable elements in these device names are as follows:

  • D is an integer that specifies the device ID (DID) instance number.

  • S is an integer that specifies the slice number.
