- Subject: Mapping of \device\harddisk12 and beyond
We are currently using Cygwin to test an iSCSI based storage subsystem.
Recently we are discussing about a test that will be connecting to 32
iSCSI volumes, effectively creating a total of 33 (32 + 1 direct
attached disk) harddisk references in Windows. In reviewing the current
POSIX mapping, we realized from
Cygwin only maps up to /dev/sd1 <=> \device\harddisk11.
Question 1: Is that the maximum number of \device\harddisk reference
that Cygwin supports?
Question 2: If not what is the the maximum?
Question 3: Is there anyway within Cygwin that I can "mount" the other
\device\harddisk references beyond the limitation?
Thank you in advance for your help.
