command to see scsi IDs used on v240 with S1 array

command to see scsi IDs used on v240 with S1 array

command to see scsi IDs used on v240 with S1 array


I need to add an S1 array to the on-board scsi port on the sunfire v240.  I don't know if I need to set the hostid on the S1, which defaults to 0.  I attached the array and can write to it but if I issue this to check the scsi sync speeds, only 4 drives appear which are the 4 internal drives on the v240.  There are 3 drives in the S1 which are not showing.  

What command can I issue to see the scsi ids used on a system?  cfgadm shows the drives and iostat -en shows them but I don't see them here.

Any info would help.


# prtpicl -v | grep sync
              :target0-sync-speed        0x27100
              :target1-sync-speed        0x27100
              :target2-sync-speed        0x27100
              :target3-sync-speed        0x27100
          :error-reset-recovery  sync

# cfgadm -al

RE: command to see scsi IDs used on v240 with S1 array

Also, I have a v440 with an external disk drive set at ID 5 and the prtpicl on that shows the device.

# prtpicl -v | grep sync
              :target0-sync-speed        320000
              :target1-sync-speed        320000
              :target2-sync-speed        320000
              :target3-sync-speed        320000
              :target5-sync-speed        40000

Any idea how I can get the v240 to see the S1?

RE: command to see scsi IDs used on v240 with S1 array

I spoke with a tech at Sun who said the prtpicl doesn't report the same with the v240 as it does for the v440, which is why it didn't show up.
