Hello,

Sorry for the OT.

I have some R710 with H200, and I'm installing Oracle Solaris on them. So far, so 
good, it works.

But disk devices appear with a long random name :

83 - [root at md3200-a] ~ # format
Searching for disks...done

AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
        0. c0t3442CEA3ABF9D1A7d0 <DEFAULT cyl 17766 alt 2 hd 255 sec 63>
           /pci at 0,0/pci8086,340b at 4/pci1028,1f1e at 0/iport at v0/disk at w3442cea3abf9d1a7,0
...


So, devices are accessed by these long random things : 
/dev/dsk/c0t3442CEA3ABF9D1A7d0 instead of the usual way /dev/dsk/c0t0d0

Is there a way to use the traditionnal references instead ?

Thanks,

JM
