Add new disk to Sun StorEdge 3310 RAID

HI guys.
Bit of a noob so bear with me.

I have 2 new disks I want to add to my StorEdge 3310 but am getting lost in the steps. We have another 3310 (JBOD) that I was able to plug the disks into and they instantly showed up. Did a few minor commands after (drvconfig, devfsadm etc..) and I was good to partition the slices...

On our 3310 (RAID) I plugged them in and its not seeing them:

# format
Searching for disks...done
       0. c1t0d0 <SUN36G cyl 24620 alt 2 hd 27 sec 107>
       1. c1t1d0 <SUN36G cyl 24620 alt 2 hd 27 sec 107>
       2. c2t0d0 <SUN-StorEdge3310-0325 cyl 35424 alt 2 hd 127 sec 127>

What steps do I need to perform to allow the server to see the 2 new added disks. (SEAGATES)

# 2  
you have to logon to the array...

# 3  
So can I accomplish that by plugging a laptop into the serial port of the array? I did see some documentation about doing that.

What would the steps be after that?
# 4  
you can use a serial line... but note, the default setting for this device is 38400 bauds! for the steps after connecting, use the documentation... haven't worked on such an array for years...
# 5  
Used serial lin ebut still can't connect with hyperterminal.
Says I am connected and when I type anything just puts x's on the screen...

Any help would be appreciated.

K I was able to get to a login screen using baud 9600 but not sure of the id and password. Is there a default one I can use?

Alright making progress.

After a lot of reading about the SCSI 3310 array I have determined there is a single bus configuration. I have added two 72 GB disks to the array and would like to set them up using sccli.

Does anyone know where I can locate that documentation in sun?
