I am trying to mirror a SCSI disk.  I need to determine the disk's UNIX device name in order to address this drive with the DD command.  How do I make this determination? I listed the devices found in the /dev directory, but was unable to determine which device name corresponded to the hard disk.  The closest match seemd to be /dev/rdsk/0s0 .

Type in:

dmesg
mount

That will give you the boot messages with ``demsg'' to see which scsi targets are where and ``mount'' will tell you where your partitions are mounted =)
