On modern drives the number of sectors per track vary, and at the SCSI and (I think) FC interface the drive looks like N blocks of data, numbered 0 to (N-1), up vote 1 down vote favorite 1 Facts: VTOC (or EFI) is required to access slices of a disk device s2 slice is used to access whole disk (including VTOC on With a direct connection you can only have one path. Format ran for a while and then said there was a problem with the disk geometry.
