I'm using Solaris DiskSuite to manage a boot mirror & a RAID. This is
the first time I've ever set this up, & I'm having a hard time with the
(I'm using this as a reference:
Where I'm getting screwed up is the "creating alternate name for
mirrored boot disk" step.
The doc says do this:
a.) Find physical path name for the second boot disk
# ls -l /dev/rdsk/c1t3d0s0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 55 Sep 12 11:19 /dev/rdsk/c1t3d0s0
b.) Create an alias for booting from disk2
ok> nvalias bootdisk2 /sbus@1,f8000000/esp@1,200000/sd@3,0:a
ok> boot bootdisk2
Here's what I get:
# ls -l /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0s0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Oct 28 14:38
/dev/rdsk/c0t8d0s0 -> ../../devices/pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@8,0:a,raw
init 0 to get to the boot prompt
nvalias bootdisk2 /pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@8,0:a
This boot command gives me a "can't find boot device" error. The box
boots anyway (I assume off the main disk).
I've tried using "/pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@8,0:a,raw" and
"/pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@8,0" as aliases based on other formats I found
using the devalias command, but they all give me the same "can't find
boot device" error.
