Error solaris 10 on 2 similar sparcs

Hi.

I have 2 t5120 sun enterprise systems. One is complete installed and RAID -1 was configured using hardware raid- raidctl on both systems.

I wanted to know if there is an easy way I can just take out the second disk (disk in right side slot when I am in front of front panel) from installed and running machine and insert into another t5120 in left slot ( I assume that it is going to be primary) and I will get a running OS on second machine without having to install OS again.

Is this doable ?I may be missing some steps , if so please correct me because last time I tried I got following errors :

Quote:
ERROR: boot-read fail
Boot device: net File and args:
Timed out waiting for Autonegotation to complete
Check cable and try again
Link Down

Evaluating:

Can't open boot device
any ideas or is this not possible at all

Thanks

you have to copy the vtoc, make it root disk etc etc etc... i've got a script we usually run to perform exactly this. let me get into work and see what i can find.

Thanks for replying.

now I am trying to do boot cdrom -s on uninstalled system but system taking long time and doing following for long time

Quote:
Boot device: /pci@0/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/usb@0,2/storage@2/disk@0:f File and args:

earlier I had configured raid 1 on this system using boot cdrom -s and raidctl and then using mirrored disk from installed system.

Thanks, I know dd is quite handy. but in this case will I have to disable the hardware RAID / reboot installed machine and then run dd to mirror the disk and then try the mirrored disk in other machine(keeping RAID1 OFF here also)? not sure how to take care of raid here. raid is already raid1 -(hardware) in installed machine.

Thanks for your help..
