Ultra10 and IDE disks - Sun Solaris

Hi, The system disk on an ULTRA10 crashed and we replaced it with a larger one 120GB. Both diks old and new are from Seagate. However, the installation of Solaris9 would only recognize 17.7GB. I thought the problem with large disks was solved with Solaris9. Anyone has an idea? Thank you much. Abdu [email]djeblihera.med.utoronto.ca[/email]...

    Have you managed to make the correct partition using format up to some
    111GB?

    I have just installed a Seagate 120GB disk without any problems on a U10.

    What openboot version do you have?

    Try /usr/platform/SUNW,Ultra-5_10/sbin/prtdiag -v to see openboot version.

    This is my output
