Well you will have to read the manuals that come with the drive.
On Solaris 2.3 and later systems, format will automatically configure and label SCSI drives, so that  they need  not  be  defined in format.dat

1)log in as root and type

#touch /reconfigure

that will foce a reconfiguration of the devices.

2)power down the system

#poweroff

3)conect the jazz drive to the scsi chain, place a terminator if needed the new dirves of wide-scsi auto terminate the cahain.

4) change the scsi id to an unused one, and turn on the power of
the jaz drive

5) power on the ultra 1

6) press stop A simultaniously wile it is booting

7) a prompt with a Ok will apear type

ok probe-scsi

a list of all scsi devices will apear, if the jaz drive apears and all the old devices you had there are no scsi confilcts

8) type in ok prompt
ok boot -r
will force system reconfiguration
the system should reboot.

9) login as root again, the jazz deive should apear in /dev/dsk/c?t?d?s? the leters mean c contoler number, t target the scsi id you placed, s slice.

format the new jazz deive, inser the madia before.

type:
#format

and format the jazz deive, be very careful in not formating other disks.

 
10) make a new file system
type newfs /dev/dsk/c?t?d?s? where ? are the coresponding numers in your personal hardware

11) mount the files system
 create a mount point

#mkdir /jazz

mount it

#mount /dev/dsk/c?t?d?s? /jazz

add a line in the file /etc/vtstab to mount and unommunt easily the jazz deive

etc.
