No, DON'T create ANYTHING unless it complains that something isn't there.

Post here if you get any error messages that stuff is missing.

Hi Fretagi,

The LUN will have come over complete with all the information, there is no need to format or newfs the device. All that will be required is to ensure that the /etc/vfstab is correct, if the information is not available from the old server then you could mount the slices one at a time and examine the contents.

Having read the full thread, I now see that you have managed to mount up the disk. As to your point on the /dev/dsk structure, the devfsadm command will do that for you.

If you have enough space in your internal disks, create a ZFS file system with a file. (Or slice if you have available)
# mkfile 100m file1 (i.e.100mb)
# zpool create vlkpool /file1
Copy your files in UFS to vlkpool
Use zfs send/receive to send vlkpool to destination solaris10 server
