Due to Iomega's implementation of the SCSI interface on the Iomega Jaz drive, NEXTSTEP is unable to obtain information regarding the disk geometry from the device. In order to format a Jaz disk, NEXTSTEP requires a disktab entry.
Add the following disktab entry to the file /etc/disktab:
n order for commands like /usr/etc/disk to "recongize" the above entry, you may need to insert
a tab before the first line. Use the disk command to initialize Jaz disk. Here is an example:
disk -i -t IOMEGAJAZ-1G /dev/rsd2a
Note: If the initialization fails, you may need to use the sdform command to format the disk. This is usually necessary for DOS formatted Jaz disk.
