Fibre channel link down on booting Solaris server

Hi

I had power issue that affected a server, in which I had power ON the server SPARC T1-B3 running solaris 10.
After power on the system stops at ok prompt, them I issued the following commands:
Code:
{0} ok setenv auto-boot? false
auto-boot? =            false
{0} ok reset-all

{0} ok

So I am not able to boot.
I found it very strange to have these errors because, all I had was a power failure to the blade, and I have managed to power on successfully the other blade on the same chassis
# 2  
Power failures can do damage, for example, the mains power could spike.

However, first thing to try is to re-seat the FC cable. Unplug and replug both ends.
# 3  
The thing I found strange is the FC cables there at the back of the chassis are only connected to the NetApp storage system, so why the system wont boot?, But a blade next to this one, does boot normaly..
# 4  
Yes, so, repeat, what I said in post#2
# 5  
Why are you not able to boot? What is the boot device? Which error message do you get when you boot?

Hi

my boot device was set to net:
Code:
ok printenv boot-device
boot-device =           disk net
{0} ok

then I use the following procedure to change the boot device:
Code:
{0} ok setenv auto-boot? false
auto-boot? =            false
{0} ok reset-all

{0} ok

the following action I beleive is to boot from one of those two disks... But how to identify them in devalias command
# 7  
Before you try to set the boot device can you boot from any of the disks??

You can try:

Code:
ok> boot disk0

ok> boot disk1

ok> boot disk2

ok> boot disk3

For each of the disks you have successfully listed.

Will the system boot from any of them?
