mapping controller ids in Solaris - Sun Solaris

I have two arrays connected to my 280R, the LUNS in the array appear as C3T?D? and C4T?D? What determines the controller id they appear as ? The disk arrays are dual mounted on another box. I assume need them to match the same controller id's they appear as on the other box to create a disk set....

    Controller id is defined in your path_to_inst file. An entry is
    created in linear order when the box is boot -r. The first card for
    controller 1 will be the first io card it discovers. Usually the
    internal controller. Then continues on to any pci or sbus cards you
    have installed in the expansion slots. So if you want to change it
    you have to remove or add an entry into path_to_inst and reboot -r.

    Dont mess with the path_to_inst file if you dont know what your doing.
    The system doesnt go well with some changes :-)

    If your talking about disksets as in logical volume manager anc cluster,
    no, the controllers dont have to be the same, thats what you have the did
    devices for.

    if your sharing storage between two nodes with disksets, use the did
    devices to build them, they are controller independant.
