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

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.

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..

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

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?
