NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     setDiskParts - sets a disk's partition information

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/privbin/setDiskParts -d special file -p format	string [ -m ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     setDiskParts changes the partion table in a disk's	volume header.

     The setDiskParts privcmd is used by Tasks which need to change partition
     information, since	root permission	is required to write to	the disk's
     volume header.

     This privcmd should not be	called directly	from the command line. fx
     provides a	much more robust user interface	for accomplishing the same

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -d	special	file
	  The special file under /dev/rdsk that	represents the entire disk.

     -p	format string
	  A series of N	semi-colon separated records, one for each partition.
	  Each record is a series of four colon	separated fields of the	form
	  <partition>:<type>:<start>:<number of	blocks>

     -m	  Overlay the partitions given by the -p argument onto the existing
	  data in the volume_header partition table.  If this option is	not
	  given, then the partition table in the volume	header is zero'd out
	  before applying the partitions specified by the "-p" argument.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     sysmgr(1M), runpriv(1M), fx(1M).
