Problems fetching EMC disks to Solaris OS.

Hi,

I have a nasty little problem with my disks on my system
My system configuration is as follows
Sunv890 with sunos 9 connected tot a IBM6800 SAN using a 2port 2 GB qla2342 adapter.

We have bought a EMC SAN. The company who sold us the san, said that it would be no problem connecting the emc disk to my machine.
The problem now is that i can see the disks on my adapter, even using luns, but i can't seem to see the disks at an OS level.

I tried
reconfiguring the qla2300 adapter using qlreconfig -d qla2300 -v
devfsadm
reboot with a reconfigure

I cannot install the emc driver software, because it will make my IBM software turn crazy.

Does anyone have an idea?
Thnkz

reboot(8)						      System Manager's Manual							 reboot(8)

Name
       reboot - automatic reboot procedures

Syntax
       /etc/reboot [ -n ] [ -q ]

Description
       The  ULTRIX  system is booted by loading a kernel image, usually into memory at location zero and transferring to zero.	Because the system
       is not reenterable, the kernel image must be read in from disk each time the system is bootstrapped.

       When the reboot of a running system is desired, is normally used.  If there are no users, can be used.  The command causes the disks to	be
       synced,	and  then  a multiuser reboot is initiated.  The system is booted and an automatic disk check is performed.  If the procedure suc-
       ceeds, the system is then brought up for the users.

       The system will reboot itself after a power failure or after a crash, provided auto-restart is enabled on your system.  A consistency check
       of the file systems will be performed and, unless the check fails, the system will resume multiuser operations.

Options
       -n   Prevents the disks from being synced.

       -q   Reboots quickly and ungracefully, without shutting down running processes first.

Files
       System code
