how to check all 6 hard drives from within Solaris 10
Posted on 2006-06-20
I am installing Solaris 10 for the first time and have no experience installing unix OSs. Only thing I am good at is following directions. I intend to install and reinstall until I am confident enough with its configuration that I can colocate the box. Thus, security is a major concern for me, including concerns regarding someone having physical access of the drives should the box ever get stolen (encryption of the data drives is of great interest to me).
This server has 6 18 gb drives. What command(s) do I use at the console (no gui) to have the system check the integrity of all 6 drives? I guess I am looking for the Sun Solaris 10 equivalent to 'scandisk' or 'chkdsk' -- some means to verify that all 6 drives are functional and error-free.
