Hello Experts,

  I have two Sun Enterprise  250 Server one with Sun OS 5.7 and the other with Sun OS 5.9.  I was able to successfully mount another SCSI HDD to the OS 5.7 , I formatted the disk and mounted it with no problems. However I need the server with Sun OS 5.9 to have that hard drive space for some Oracle installaion. So, I took out the SCSI HDD from Sun OS 5.7 and put on Sun OS 5.9 and did a format command and i'm unable to see the drive. These are the exact same servers except for the version os OS. Not sure why OS 5.9 is not seeing the SCSI drive.

    Accepted Solution

    You need to configure the system to see the new devices.

    The simplest method is to do a reconfiguration boot using

    boot -r


    reboot -r

    To configure a running system, use drvconfig, or the replacement in Solaris 9 is devfsadm.

    Hope this helps.
