Use the follow to locate a USB disk partition to mount.
Example of locating the device partition.
mbraden-u60# rmformat Looking for devices... 1. Logical Node: /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2 Physical Node: /pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@6,0 Connected Device: TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1401 1009 Device Type: DVD Reader 2. Logical Node: /dev/rdsk/c2t0d0s2 Physical Node: /pci@1f,4000/usb@4,3/storage@6/disk@0,0 Connected Device: Maxtor OneTouch 0122 Device Type: Removable mbraden-u60#
The device I am looking for is the Maxtor OneTouch.
Note: Remember in Solaris, the syntax for a device is c=Controller, t=Target ID, d=Disk ID and s=Slice or Partition where slice 2 is used to represent all the partitions.
To list the partitions on the Maxtor OneTouch USB drive, use prtvtoc with the Logical Node from from the rmformat output.
prtvtoc to show the partition map of the device.
mbraden-u60# prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 * /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2 partition map * * Dimensions: * 512 bytes/sector * 107 sectors/track * 27 tracks/cylinder * 2889 sectors/cylinder * 24622 cylinders * 24620 accessible cylinders * * Flags: * 1: unmountable * 10: read-only * * First Sector Last * Partition Tag Flags Sector Count Sector Mount Directory 0 2 00 4194828 66932352 71127179 / 1 3 01 0 4194828 4194827 2 5 00 0 71127180 71127179 mbraden-u60#
To mount and use the USB drive, mount partition 0 to get the root partition of the USB disk. In this case, the root partition is slice 0. So mount /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s0.
