I picked one of these up after buy some larger scsi drive and having them not
As I understand SunOS has limitation of 2GB per partition but the root
partition must be 1 gb and first.
So there by to get the biggest drive I cam up with something like
Cylinder: 1567, Head: 255, Track: 399585, Sector Size: 512, Sector/Track: 63
bytes = 12889013760, kb = 12586927.5, MB=12586928,GB=12GB
so in theory a format.dat entry would looks something like this based on my
disk_type="codesrc 12" \
: ctlr = SCSI : fmt_time = 4 \
: ncyl = 1565 : acyl = 2 : ncyl= 1567 \
: nhead = 255 : nsect = 25173855 : rpm = 7200 \
: bpt = 32256 : bps = 512 \
partition="codesrc 12" \
: c = 0, 10046256184125
Does this track... I am a little confused on the partition. I would
assume that partions would need to be end to end, this is the case with linux.
However many of the examples I have looked at overlap.
I would assume the block mapping would need to be something like
I tried setting the disk label to SUN2.1 but for whatever reason I seem to be
running out of room way to quick using the default partitioning scheme I
haven't hit this road block on my physical drive Conner (SUN1.02) drive also
using the default partition layout.
