Solaris Partitioning

Hi everyone,

I have a Sun Fire V245 running Solaris 10 with 4 x 73Gb drives.  I have partitioned 3 of the drives with 1 single big partition.  However, I would like to change my partitioning totally on these 3 drives.  However, i cant seem to setup partitioning again through Solaris Management Console and I cant find a way to remove the current partitioning.

Is there someone out there who might be able to hep me out?  I just need to delete the current setup so i can re-partition the 3 drives again (im sure its probably a really simple fix, its just i am a Solaris virgin!)

use format to repartition the disks. format is menu driven and easy to use.

Assuming this is not your boot disk you're talking about, you can use the format command.

Be aware that you will loose all data on these disks, so make sure you've got a good backup.
