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
And that's the size of the drive in 8-bit bytes.
