Make Solaris recognize additional disk devices

Had a Dell JBOD (with 15 disks) hooked up to a Dell Perc 6/e SAS controller.

The disk devices showed up as /dev/sd4-sd18, but were not under /dev/*dsk/.

run this command to make the disk devices show up:


I administer a lot of boxen running different OSes. Solaris is the only OS that you just about have to be an expert to even use. Now, I used it a lot more 10 years ago, but now I'm spread a lot thinner.

...Solaris is also the only OS that doesn't work out of the box. Clean Solaris 10 install. Had to manually configure dns resolution, nis, domainname, nis, etc.
