Explorer causing syslog error

Hi there, I have upgraded my explorer (SUNWexplo) on a solaris 10 Sparc box from version 3.4 to the latest version (5.5) . However im a little concerned, whenever I run the new explorer either manually or scheduled, I get a syslog event as follows

1 in 0:08:31: Sep 22 17:00:15 fmy.machine.com scsi: [ID 107833 kern.warning] WARNING: /pci@0,0/pci-ide@7,1/ide@0/sd@0,0 (sd2):


My question is really , what is /pci@0,0/pci-ide@7,1/ide@0/sd@0,0 (sd2): ??

my two disks have physical addresses of (see output of format command below)

AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
0. c0t2d0 <DEFAULT cyl 8921 alt 2 hd 255 sec 63>
/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3/sd@2,0
1. c0t3d0 <DEFAULT cyl 8921 alt 2 hd 255 sec 63>
/pci@0,0/pci1022,7450@2/pci1000,3060@3/sd@3,0

is /pci@0,0/pci-ide@7,1/ide@0/sd@0,0 (sd2): the bus or something ....could explorer probing around cause some errors like this

Im a bit lost and any help would be greatly appreciated

that could be your CD-ROM, try that command to see more :

# iostat -E

you could force to run only the disk module:
# explorer -w disks

or skip the disk tests
# explorer -w !disks

in my example, i can see in "iostat -E" that sd6 is my TOSHIBA CD-Drive, with "iostat -En" i can get my virtual path of that TOSHIBA drive, it's c1t6d0:

ok thanks , but im still confused, my iostat -En gives me this
Code:
# iostat -En
c1t0d0           Soft Errors: 2 Hard Errors: 1 Transport Errors: 0
Vendor: AMI      Product: Virtual CDROM    Revision: 1.00 Serial No:
Size: 0.00GB <0 bytes>
Media Error: 0 Device Not Ready: 0 No Device: 1 Recoverable: 0
Illegal Request: 2 Predictive Failure Analysis: 0

So my cdrom is c1t0d0 and matching this off against /dev/dsk/c1t0d0 which points to

/devices/pci@0,0/pci1022,7460@6/pci1022,7464@0,1/storage@1/disk@0,0:q

Then i can safely assume that /pci@0,0/pci-ide@7,1/ide@0/sd@0,0 (sd2): is NOT my cdrom, nor is it any of my two scsi disks


So what the hell is it ??

what's the output of that command:

# iostat -E | awk '/sd2/ {getline; print}'
