Thanks for the replies... (Michael Greenberg, Gregg Ferguson, Joshua

It turns out that we have a Storagetek D173 array... We did some intense web
research and found the following
software which we loaded on and configured the array with: IBM TotalStorage
DS4000/FastT, Storage Manager, V9.12.G5.06

It did a half-way decent job although it has a few quirks.....

Hi Sun Managers -

We are trying to get an old (but new to us) Sun 6800 to "see" some Storagetek
FC disk arrays.....

The 6800 was loaded w/ just about the latest Solaris 10 (I think the HW rev
was 8/09), and the recommended patches from April installed.

We have 4 arrays.  The name I found on them is "StorageTek LSI Class 2655 mode
0855 FC Storage Array"

We've installed CAM, and configured the IP address and hostname on the
controller.  We are now trying, through CAM to get the system to recognize the
arrays. No luck.

Note:  This is what format looks like FYI:


2. c1t3d31 <STK-UniversalXport-0612 cyl 8 alt 2 hd 64 sec 64>
3. c3t1d31 <STK-UniversalXport-0612 cyl 8 alt 2 hd 64 sec 64>
4. c5t0d31 <STK-UniversalXport-0612 cyl 8 alt 2 hd 64 sec 64>
5. c7t2d31 <STK-UniversalXport-0612 cyl 8 alt 2 hd 64 sec 64>

Any help/hints would be appreciated.
