UNIXNAME2BOOTNAME(8)        System Manager's Manual       UNIXNAME2BOOTNAME(8)



NAME
       unixname2bootname - convert SunOS device name to boot device name

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/kvm/unixname2bootname name

AVAILABILITY
       This  program  is available for desktop SPARCsystems and for the SPARC-
       system 600MP series only.

DESCRIPTION
       The unixname2bootname command converts a SunOS device name  to  a  boot
       PROM  device  name.  This is useful for OPENPROM systems that have more
       complicated (though absolutely general) device names.

EXAMPLES
       On a SPARCstation 1 or  a  SPARCstation  1+  system,  unixname2bootname
       would act like this:
              example# /usr/kvm/unixname2bootname sd0b
              sd(0,0,1)
              example#

       On  a SPARCstation 2 system or a SPARCstation 10 system, unixname2boot-
       name would act like this:
              example# /usr/kvm/unixname2bootname sd0b
              /sbus@1,f8000000/esp@0,800000/sd@3,0:b
              example#

       The output of unixname2bootname can be  combined  using  various  shell
       quote mechanisms to form arguments for reboot(8) and other utilities.
              example# reboot "`/usr/kvm/unixname2bootname sd0b` -sw"

FILES
       /dev/openprom

SEE ALSO
       openprom(4S), boot(8)

BUGS
       unixname2bootname does not deal with non-disk devices well.
