Sorry that should be:

Code:
ok> reset-all

So the cdrom drive is detected on the scsi bus so try:

Code:
ok> devalias cdrom /pci@8,700000/scsi@6/disk@6,0:f
ok> boot cdrom -s

I've picked this back up again and I see more output on the screen. The whole output is
Code:
Boot device: /pci@8, 700000/scsi@6/disk@6,0:f File and args: -s
Error: /packages/deblocker: Last Trap: Corrected ECC Error
 Short disk read
 The file just loaded does not appear to be executable.

Does the additional output help any?

Sorry I didn't see this earlier.. Just tried it and I get:
Code:
Boot device: /pci@8,700000/scsi@6,0:f  File and args: -s
Unknown argument

Can't open boot device

Set diag-switch? to true and diag-level to max, and reset, then it should run a full memory test!

Thanks! Could you please tell me how to set. I tried
Code:
ok> diag

which didn't work.

AFAIR the following prints all variables
Code:
ok> printenv

And the following can set them.
Code:
ok> setenv diag-switch? true
ok> setenv diag-level max

The the next reset might take very long, because the POST (power on self test) does full diagnostic.
Dependent on you hardware/model there might be slightly different *diag* variables.

Did you check that you have the right solaris version? sparc vs. x86. The max post is of course also a good idea.

Thanks.. I let it run while I was off site so I didn't see what scrolled by. But at the end I see:
Code:
Power On Selftest Failed
 CPU: 0 cause | OBMD
 CPU: 1 cause | OBMD

The message looks like memory error.
Set diag-level to min again; you might still see the error but sooner.

You should power-off the box, open the box, and swap the DIMMs.
1. Re-seating might wipe off some dust or oxide
and
2. During boot the DIMM0 or the first memory bank is used; moving a good DIMM to this position will enable boot (ok, it depends on the hardware/model if this trick works).
You might need to also set the diag-switch? to false again.
Of course, when booted, it might fail/crash later...
