Jumpstart is completing on Lumana, which will become the SCT Luminis server.
There are a few new things coming with this Jumpstart:
- Solaris 9, release 9-04 (required for supporting the SunFire V440).
- A volume manager layout for SVM disks. The new layout derives the MD device number from the underlying raw disk device number. The target number is used for the tens and the slice number is used for the ones: c1t0d0s5 becomes d5, c1t1d0s5 becomes d15. Mirrored devices are still the only things supported, and the mirror device is taken from 7+the target number of the second disk: if the previous two were mirrored, the mirror meta device would be d85. Swap is always d8, d18, and d78, since it’s impossible for any other slices to come up with a d*8 meta device name.
There are a few rc*.d scripts that need to be moved out of the way after the patches are applied now.
