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


SPARC T3-1B, No Keyboard

{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?
