Also, some of you noted that I shouldn't use /dev/alias....I meant to type
devalias but I submitted the e-mail after a long day at work so I had a few
Paul's e-mail is below as it is the most complete solution:
--- Make sure you have a device alias for the two disks and then set the boot-device to try the pair of them:
(from the ok prompt) devalias pri_disk /sbus@2,0/QLGC,isp@1,10000/sd@8,0 devalias sec_disk /sbus@a,0/QLGC,isp@1,10000/sd@0,0 setenv boot-device pri_disk sec_disk
Then ensure you have a valid bootblock on both disks:
(as root from OS) installboot /usr/platform/`uname -m`/lib/fs/ufs/bootblock /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 installboot /usr/platform/`uname -m`/lib/fs/ufs/bootblock /dev/rdsk/c2t0d0s0
