* Thanks to James Kwong <email@example.com> and
Bill Hewitt (cst)<firstname.lastname@example.org>
who pointed out that it works fine under solstice backup 5.5.1
that comes as part of the Easy Access
Server version 2.0 disk that comes with Solaris 7 5/99. (which
we had as well as the 5.1 disk)...
* Solstice Backup IS currently supported under Solaris 7 AND both 32 and 64 bit
* You cant use /etc/LGTOuscsi/inquire to probe scsi devices when you
have this problem it doesn't find
* Chan Cao <email@example.com> suggested using isainfo -kv u'll see
whether 64 or 32 bit kernel modules are supported.
This returned "64-bit sparcv9 kernel modules " on our system - seems
it will support either.
* There now seems to be two lus versions installed
/usr/kernel/drv/lus - 32 bit
/usr/kernel/drv/sparcv9/lus - 64 bit
plus a lus.conf with both.
This definitely looks a lot better to start the configuration with.
