This is a brand new OS coming off CD. Installboot is already to go at that
point. I contacted Sun and they say if you "fat-finger" probe-scs-all", it
will cause this problem. The solution was to turn power completely off after
the "fat finger". Make sure "auto-boot" was set to false and wait for the
disks to spin up on the RSM. Then make sure the exact boot device is
selected by using "show-disks" at the OK prompt. Then enter boot <device>.

It worked.
