I am part of a small (me and another guy) Solaris 2.4 admin team, looking after two SparcServers and 50 or so users. For our sins we have recently been given charge of a SGI runing IRIX 6.2. on our local network.
We need to install a tape drive on this machine (network backups are no longer wanted).
Here are a few questions.
How can I find the target ID of the internal?
It doesn't look like there is one. There is no format utility that we're used to. and df -k does'nt show what root's partition is.
How then do we bring it to some kinda
prom level that we're used to. There is no stop 'A' on the keyboard, We would like to do a probe-scsi or equivalent.
Also any useful info on installing a tape drive would be appreciated.
This is an easy one for you IRIX bods ;-)
