Quick Fix – Trouble to boot from San Lun in Solaris 10 on Sparc


I have started unixadminschool.com ( aka gurkulindia.com) in 2009 as my own personal reference blog, and later sometime i have realized that my leanings might be helpful for other unixadmins if I manage my knowledge-base in more user friendly format. And the result is today's' unixadminschool.com. You can connect me at - https://www.linkedin.com/in/unixadminschool/

    i would like to have a clarificaiton in step 3, while rebuilding the devices

    ok> boot /pci@500/pci@0/pci@c/SUNW,qlc@0/fp@1,0/disk@w50060e80164e9d1a,10b:a -svV . Here “w50060e80164e9d1a” is a WWN number and 10b is a hex decimal format for that LUN we got from probe-scsi-all output.
    Could you please let me know how you added a–svV part here in the command?

      hi narayana, -sVV is options of boot command ( -s to boot into into single user mode, -vv to display the booting information in verbose mode ), not related to the lun address

    How to identify LUN HEX NO.

    Hi Pranesh,

    Boot device: /pci@500/pci@0/pci@c/SUNW,qlc@0/fp@1,0/disk@w50060e80164exx1a,267:a

    — this is the boot device path, and the 267 in the final part indicates the Decimal value of LUN number, that we need to convert to hexa to find the right disk from probe-scsi-all
