The system creates 16 virtual disk nodes by default. If needed, additional virtual disk nodes can be created with idmknod. Edit /etc/conf/node.d/vdisk to define an additional node, then use the command /etc/conf/bin/idmknod to recreate the nodes.
By convention, all virtual disk nodes have the form /dev/rdsk/vdisk for character virtual disks and /dev/dsk/vdisk for block virtual disks. The characters at the end of the name must be integers. For example, /dev/rdsk/vdisk17 is an example of a character virtual disk device and /dev/dsk/vdisk22 is an example of a block virtual disk device.
Do not use the following virtual disk device names, which are reserved for the purpose specified:
|vdisk1||mirroring root filesystem|
|vdisk2||mirroring the swap device|
|vdisk3||mirroring the boot device|
