    Hi duds,

    I have SUN E450 box with Solaris 8 and a few internal disks, but i can
    only see the disks attached to one of the SCSI controlers. I think i
    canīt see the disks atached to two Symbios 53C875 SCSI controlers that
    apears in prtdiag output. Could be drivers? How can obtain those
    drivers to be able to see all disks, i need them all.

    Regards.

    Did you run drvconfig; disks; devlinks or devfsadm already?
    Did you try a boot -r?
    Do the disks show up when running probe-scsi-all from the OBP?

    Martin,

    Yes, iīve already run that commands, and nothing.
    Yes, iīve already did boot -r
    Yes, the disks show up in probe-scsi-all result.

    What else could i do?

    I canīt find any drivers!

    Resgards.


  4. Re: Disks atached to a Symbios 53C875, canīt see them.

    Yes, format was the first one iīve tried, and i can only see some
    disks.

    Regards.

    Take a look at /dev/[r]dsk/ and /devices. Are the device entries
    for the disks there?

    You don't need any additional drivers. The 53C875 is supported
    "out of the box" by the glm kernel module:

    NAME
    glm - GLM SCSI Host Bus Adapter Driver

    SYNOPSIS
    scsi@unit-address

    DESCRIPTION
    The glm Host Bus Adapter driver is a SCSA compliant nexus
    driver that supports the LSI 53c810, LSI 53c875, LSI
    53c876, LSI 53C896 and LSI 53C1010 SCSI chips
    [...]

    The controller is not HVD and the disks SE/LVD are they? Or the other
    way around?

    If the controler is HVD, then it will *not* work with 99% of disks sold.

    I doubt so. First, the 53C875 is a UW/SE chipset and second, the OP said
    he could see the disks at the OBP.
