SUMMARY: netra X1 & disksuite

Hi all,

Logged a call with Sun and they have recognised this
as a bug with IDE drives and disksuite 4.2.1.
Something to do with the internal disk numbers which
IDE drives don't have and SCSI disks do !!!!

A patch is being developed in the states at the moment

Thanks for the help from those who replied


Please disregard my previous e-mail !! I put the wrong
disk slices in the e-mail !!

This is how it should have read !!


I have just jumpstarted a Netra X1 with Solaris 8
Succesfully and am now trying to install Disksuite

I have installed all of the Solaris 8 recommended
patches, but still have a problem !!!

I do the following :

# metainit d10 1 1 c0t0d0s0
# metainit d11 1 1 c0t2d0s0
Then get :
     error: c0t2d0s2 overlaps with device in d10

Now my question is :

How the hell can the devices overlap when they are on
2 different drives ?????

I have check my disk partition and there is no overlap
in the partitioning of the slices !! And I have done
this exact same config on systems other that X1.

So, I am assuming that this is an X1 / IDE problem !!

If anyone has any ideas please e-mail !!!
