How do I perform a ufs format on a 160 Gb USB external hard drive with Solaris 9?
Posted on 2006-04-26
I have two questions which I've been trying to figure out for days now:
1. I just purchased 2 Iomega 160Gb external hard drives which I intend using as mass storage devices on a Solaris 9 system.
Doing a prtconfig -D command, I can see the USB device listed. I used the mkfs command to create the ufs file system, but managed to get only 72Gb on this drive. How do I format the full capacity of this disk for ufs?
2. How can I determine on this Solaris system whether the USB port is v1.1 or v2.0, and how can I optimize the setup on the USB port for maximum transfer speed?
The hard drive info:
Average Seek Time:11 ms
Ok, I fibbed, 3 question actually.
Thanks in advance.
