Dear managers,

thanks a lot to

Mike Keplinger
Bobby Williams
David Stempnakowski

and many others that tried to help me. I went through the whole setup  
once again, waited for the resync and tried again. This time it worked.  
Could not find out what went wrong the first time. However, it seems to  
be import to find the correct labels for booting the disks. Some  
documents indicate to do

	ls -l /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0

	lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          74 Jun 26 17:27  
/dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0 ->  

and then use

	boot /pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@4/fp@0,0/disk@w21000004cffd1290,0:a,raw

at the ok prompt. This fails with "Can't open boot device". I don't  
know why. Does anyone? However, "boot disk1" or "boot  
/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@4/fp@0,0/disk@1,0" does work. I am a happy  
manager now!!! :-)

Thanks a lot to all,
