Appearance of Virtual LUNs in a Guest Domain

The virtual LUN or LUNs that are associated with a virtual SCSI HBA behave as if they are physical LUNs.

A virtual LUN that represents a SCSI disk, for example, appears in the guest domain as a regular disk under /dev/[r]dsk. The virtual LUN is visible in the output of the format command because the underlying associated physical LUN is of type disk. The device path of the virtual LUN can be operated on by other commands, such as prtpicl and prtconf.

If the virtual LUN represents a CD or a DVD, its device path is defined in /dev/[r]dsk. If the virtual LUN represents a tape device, its device path is defined in /dev/rmt. For commands that can operate on the virtual LUN, see Managing Devices in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
