would not recognize the new storage I presented to it from our
Xiotech SAN. On Solaris 10 everything has always "worked out of
the box". The problem was from two issues.
1) Solaris 9 does not have the drivers for the Emulex HBA. They have
to be downloaded from here:
(Note: you need a sunsolve account to get the drivers).
2) The HBA was "unconfigured". In order to figure out if the card is
"unconfigured", use `cfgadm` - if you see output like this:
Ap_Id Type Receptacle Occupant Condition
c3 fc connected unconfigured failed
You need to run:
#cfgadm -c configure c3
After you do that all is well.
