Thanks to Michael Salehi, Meil mark, Andy Sit and Dan Brown for responding back.

  Response in general is "prtvtoc" reads disk label which is in first 2
cylinders on disks.


My original query is below:


Is there a dir. like lvmconf in HP where disk configuration is saved on SUN

"vfstab" file and info from "format" command should be okay to restore a disk
layout ..right?
Where does "prtvtoc" and "format" get info from? Are these commands looking in
some "disk.conf" file?

"man" on these commands do not say much.

Appreciate inputs.

Thanks in advance.
