    Solaris 10 on Virtual Machine

    919606
      Hi all,

      I installed Solaris 10 on VM (VMWare).
      For installing some application I need to partition disk like shown below (I added SCSI disk, 12 GB from VM settings):

      DISKS:c2t0d0(12000)
      SLICE:root:/:1024:-:-:-:c2t0d0s0:-
      SLICE:swap:swap:512:-:-:-:c2t0d0s1:-
      SLICE:var:/var:1200:-:-:-:c2t0d0s3:-
      SLICE:opt:/opt:2048:-:-:-:c2t0d0s4:-
      SLICE:log:/log:512:-:-:-:c2t0d0s5:-
      SLICE:sybase_data_dev:/sybase_data_dev:4096:-:-:-:c2t0d0s6:-
      SLICE:back:back:1024:-:-:-:c2t0d0s7:-

      My first question is how to make those slices. I tried with format -> partition (following http://fengnet.com/book/Solaris_admin/ch01lev1sec15.html) and I can create root,swap and var but cannot proceed further (got message: opt is not expected).
      Is there any way to make this with format or it can be done at another way?

      Next step would be to install bootblock to c2t0dos0 (I tried with instalboot and got message: Installboot is obsolete. Use installgrub(1M) ).
      There is a webpage with instructions regarding bootblock -> http://sun.drydog.com/faq/7.html
      ... but it does not work for me :-(

      Any help would be very much appreciated!

      Best regards,
