    How to determine which iSCSI Controller is used in an 240 Server?

    925885
      Hi there,

      I am in need of some help from one of you, cause I need to determine which controller is used in an 240-Server which I cant access physically. I have only remote access and as of yet I couldn't figure out which iSCSI Controller is used. Can someone tell me how to determine that with the built-In commands in Solaris 9? And on top of that, is there a tool in Solaris 9 adequate to iscsiadm in Solaris 10?

      What I tried so far is this: /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag

      But I didn't see any informations regarding anything related to iSCSI?

      Or has Solaris 9 some sort of a software controller for iSCSI, which I simply don't know!

      Thanks for your help

          Ummm ... none.

          The V240 platform was dedsigned before iSCSI existed.
          It was offered as a simple entry-level platform with nonthing fancy in its design.
          Here's your iSCSI RFC.
          http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3720
          Read it and glance at the datestamps in it.
          You can review more information about iSCSI at Wikipedia if you wish.

          It's onboard internal SCSI controller is a conventional one. You're not going to remotely access your disks without connecting to the system as a whole.

          Perhaps you need to go get the system documentation, which is freely available from Oracle's site:
