Targ,

As root, run the "devfsadm" command. The OS will scan, detect and build a new device path if a new LUN or disk that was presented to the system. After devfsadm completes, check for the new device by running format. Although, since you're not using a volume manager, I'm not sure how you're going to increase the size of the raw device. Let us know what happens.

Still not able to see the presented space.
I think am having issues, because in the machine there is one HBA being share between storage and tape drive. that toppled with Sol9 limitations...

Targ,

Can you start from the beginning?
So, you have attached storage. Is it SAN? If it's SAN, did you mask "new" additional LUNs to the server? What type of HBA's are you using? If they are Emulex, does sd.conf have all of the targets needed?
