    Solaris 10, V240 - format command hangs

    807557
      Hello,

      I have V240 with Solaris 10 on it (latest recommended patches installed). When I run the format command it seems to hang after disk selection:

      myhost [home/dan/]# format
      Searching for disks...done

      AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
      0. c0t0d0 <SUN72G cyl 14087 alt 2 hd 24 sec 424>
      /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/sd@0,0
      1. c0t1d0 <SUN72G cyl 14087 alt 2 hd 24 sec 424>
      /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/sd@1,0
      2. c0t2d0 <SUN72G cyl 14087 alt 2 hd 24 sec 424>
      /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/sd@2,0
      Specify disk (enter its number): 0
      selecting c0t0d0
      [disk formatted]

      ^C^C

      Admittedly, I haven't run format in quite a while, but it has definately worked before. I have tried a devfsadm -Cv but doesn't seem to have done anything.

      Anyone got any ideas?

      Thanks in advance,

      Dan
