Thanks to the replys from Anthony, Steve and James.

Here are a few ways to do this

Use iostat -E or the "inquiry" option in format to see the serial 
numbers then match them to the sticker on the drive.

dd if=/dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s2 of=/dev/null
then see which drives starts blinking like crazy.
I note that you can also use the format utility, pick the drive
and then do a nondestructive read analyze and note which drive light
starts blinking.

On a Blade 2000, the bottom drive is always t1, and the top drive is 
always t2.

My original question:

On a sunblade 2000 is there a way to tell if either the top hard drive
or the bottom hard drive is c1t1 vs. c1t2?

I have two drives in the system and one I need to replace which is c1t2d0.

         1. c1t2d0 <drive type unknown>
Specify disk (enter its number):
