NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     verifyDisk	- verifies disk	surface	and partitions as an option disk

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/sysadm/privbin/verifyDisk -d drivetype -c controller number -u unit
     number [ -l LUN]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     verifyDisk	invokes	fx to perform two verification passes over the disk
     surface, isolate any bad blocks found, and	then partition it as an	option
     disk with all usable space	in one partition, partition 7.	It is
     essentially equivalent to performing the operation	 fx -x -c VERIFY on
     the indicated disk.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -d	drivetype
	  recognized types can be found	in the fx(1M) man page.	 The types
	  include dksc for SCSI	drives,	jag for	SCSI drives connected to a
	  Jaguar VME SCSI controller, and fd for floppy	drives.

     -c	controller number
	  the controller that the drive	is attached to.

     -u	unit number
	  The unit number of the drive

     -l	LUN
	  The LUN of the drive,	if the LUN is non-zero

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

     "verifyDisk -d dksc -c 0 -u 1" would verify the SCSI disk with unit ID
     number 1 attached to SCSI controller 0.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /var/sysadm/salog	 verifyDisk writes all fx output to this file, the
			 system	administration log.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

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