Unhappy creating zfs filesystem


Hello,
Im a linux admin, but a Solaris newbie.
I found zfs help on Sun site, (http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/...s/zfshowto.jsp)
but I don't know how to identify the drives to get the names.
i.e. cat /proc/partitions or fdisk -l doesnt work here.

Cheers,
John

For the record, rebooting was unnecessary, you could have run instead:
Code:
devfsadm -v
