Hello Sunmanagers,

first I wanted to thank everyone who replied to my message, some of you wrote me 
back a couple of times.  Thank you!

I had quite a suggestions that I will highlight briefly.  The included:

 >>> make sure and run the install per the docs

Yes, I did this, and have them printed up

 >>> you need to search the archives.  This has been discussed several times

believe me, I know the wrath of this list for one who does not do his homework 
first and RTFM, search the archives, etc.

 >>> did you install patch 114880-03

in my original message, I stated that I had patch 114880-04 installed

Russ LeBar nailed it on the head when he sent me this though:

# ls -lAF /dev/sunray /devices/pseudo/sunray@0:sunray
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     other          33 Apr 17  2003 /dev/sunray -> 
crw-rw-rw-    1 bin      bin      242,   0 Apr  8  2003 


for what ever reason, the install did not/could not create a
/devices/pseudo/sunray@0:sunray device. The install logs gave no indication that 
the install had any problems. I could not manually create it myself either.  But 
all the other pieces were in place, i.e. flat files updated, daemons running.

In the end, I was never able to create the entry in the /devices/pseudo 
directory, so I grabbed another disk pack and did a fresh Solaris 9 install.

Between the install document, and Andreas Hoeschler post that I found when I was 
searching the archives (a copy is below in my original message), I had the 
sunray software installed and I was logged into my Sunray in under an hour, from 
a fresh Solaris 9 system.
