Sun Ultra 30 boot problems

Hi all,
I've just replaced the eprom battery on my Sun Ultra-30 and having boot issues. For some reason its trying to boot off the network instead of the DISK1. Howe can I change it so the open boot does not default to the boot device: NET

You'll have to check the nvram contents and set them accordingly, a short term fix to get the system back up would be from the ok ptompt. Run the command boot disk or boot disk1this should boot you into the OS.

From there you can reset the contents using the the eeprom command see man eeprom.

Not a problem, you should try to get a note of the config prior to changing a battery - it can save a bit of greif especially if there are RAID disks involved.
