I have a FreeBSD-initialised 8-disk vdev, all 10TB WD RED, now on a server with OmniOS r151026, connected via LSI 3008 HBA.

At POST, the card shows all disks with right geometry (I can post picture if necessary).

But format reports a wrong (~ 2TB) geometry:

c0t5000CCA26BD6960Ed0: configured with capacity of 2047.71GB

format should instead report something like (only first drive listed):

AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
       0. c0t5000CCA26BD0CAFAd0 <ATA-WDC WD100EFAX-68-0A83-9.10TB>
          /scsi_vhci/disk@g5000cca26bd0cafa

diskinfo correctly reports size (showing only first disk):

root@omniosce:~# diskinfo -p
TYPE    DISK                    VID      PID              SIZE          RMV SSD
SCSI    c0t5000CCA26BD0CAFAd0   ATA      WDC WD100EFAX-68 10000831348736 no  no

How to force OmniOS (illumos) "format" properly recognize disk geometry?

Thank you in advance.

Edit 2018-06-02: Added disk kind and expected result (thanks to @andrew-henle)

    How about telling us what the disks are, and what you think should be reported? Jun 1, 2018 at 23:29
  • Thank you, I have edited question and added details, also diskinfo output.

Andy Fiddaman, one of OmniOS maintainers, suggested to use zpool labelclear.

That worked perfectly and allowed format to properly recognise the disk geometry again.

Thanks to Andy Fiddaman, and thanks to all illumos' developers and maintainers for such an outstanding OS.
