It seems I had a flaky power supply. The drives would spin up, recognize
the power supply is not reliable and then power down. Replacing the power
supply fixed everything.
1. Get firmware updates for the drives.
2. Check out the document by David D. Ward previously posted to sun-managers.
This document covers appropriate jumper settings.
Thanks for all the replies.
