Problems fetching EMC disks to Solaris OS.


I have a nasty little problem with my disks on my system
My system configuration is as follows
Sunv890 with sunos 9 connected tot a IBM6800 SAN using a 2port 2 GB qla2342 adapter.

We have bought a EMC SAN. The company who sold us the san, said that it would be no problem connecting the emc disk to my machine.
The problem now is that i can see the disks on my adapter, even using luns, but i can't seem to see the disks at an OS level.

I tried
reconfiguring the qla2300 adapter using qlreconfig -d qla2300 -v
reboot with a reconfigure

I cannot install the emc driver software, because it will make my IBM software turn crazy.

Does anyone have an idea?

so you are not seeing these under format?

what do you see for
 ls -l /dev/fc/fp*

are these seen in /etc/path_to_inst

Im sorry im having problems posting here

nothing under format

ls -l dev/fc/fp* gives me /dev/fc/fp0 -> /devices/pci@9,600000/SUNW,qlc@2/fp@0,0:devctl
And there is nothing in /etc/path_to_inst.

The lun is populated in the sd.conf, but i can't seem te find any lpfc.conf file. Is that maybe because i'm using a qlogic hba?
