This document contains the steps that are needed to install an Iomega drive onto the following Sun Workstation versions.
Set the SCSI ID Switch
For SunOS 4.1.1, 4.1.2, or 4.1.3, use SCSI ID 0, 1, or 2. Be sure to select an unused setting. For Solaris 2.0, SCSI ID 3 & 7 are reserved. Use any other unused SCSI ID setting.
Attach the Iomega Drive to your SCSI adapter or chain
Create a Device Entry Point (For Solaris 2.0 only). After attaching the Iomega device and starting your SPARCstation, enter the following command at the OK prompt:
Entries for format.dat.
Enter the appropriate entry into the /etc/format.dat file. Use the system editor and be careful not to change other file entries. The entries are case sensitive!
|SunOS 4.1.1, 4.1.2, 4.1.3 (for SunOS 4.1.1, replace the controller type SCSI with MD21)|
