I use fdisk to find this out. For instance say your drive you want to find the size of is c2t4d0, then do: # fdisk /dev/rdsk/c2t4d0p0 Near the top fdisk will print this kind of drive info: Total disk size is 9345 cylinders Cylinder size is 12544 (512 byte) blocks Simply multiply the numbers and you get the result: # echo '9345 * 12544 * 512' | bc 60018524160 And that's the size of the drive in 8-bit bytes.
