Adding new disk mount in Unix

We had 250 GB of disk space added to our Unix solaris 10 server.
After doing a format I did see:
7. c2t50001FE15008009Cd1 <HP-HSV200-5031 cyl 31998 alt 2 hd 128 sec 128>
       8. c2t50001FE150080098d1 <HP-HSV200-5031 cyl 31998 alt 2 hd 128 sec 128>
       9. c3t50001FE15008009Dd1 <HP-HSV200-5031 cyl 31998 alt 2 hd 128 sec 128>
      10. c3t50001FE150080099d1 <HP-HSV200-5031 cyl 31998 alt 2 hd 128 sec 128>

How can I mount this on server, manually and adding it to the vfstab?
1 Solution

-If you want to partition the disk and use different partitions for different file systems, then use the format tool to partition the disk (max 8 partitions, no overlap between active partitions).
- Next, you need to create a file system on the partition. For that, use newfs
- make the mount dir (a new dir)
- mount the file sysem. Use mount command
- Add to /etc/vfstab. man vfstab
