Thanks to Joe Fletcher, Cyril Plisko, Bertrand Hutin, Pascal Brostabussiat,
Bryan Moore, Roman Pestka, Bob Green, and Juergen Waiblinger.

Several people mentioned using lputil ( usually in /usr/sbin/lpfc/ ).  I
tried that but it says no adaptors found.  Not sure why because I'm 99% sure
there are emulex HBAs in the box.  We actually have 2 of the using ATF
(application transparent failover) which maybe has something to do with why
lputil doesn't show them?  If anyone has more info on that please feel free
to share.  Another suggestion someone mentioned was prtdiag
(/usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag).  I had tried this before but in my
haste I looked right past the fact that the model was listed as LP8000.
Excuse me while I hide behind my embarassment.  Anyway if it weren't for the
list I might not have gone back so thanks to everyone who replied and anyone
who has ever helped anyone else on this list.

Other suggestions where:

	and a utility someone wrote in perl for system discovery:
