Thanks to all who responded to this. There were too many to mention. Responses ranged from using "probe-scsi-all" (this does not work) to using "probe-fcal-all" (this DOES work).

The best response was from Dan Barile and I wanted to pass it on. I tried it and it was "very cool"!

Dan sent:
" to get info on any set of prom commands,
   do a...
   ok> sifting <command string>
   where command string is a substring of the command you
   are grepping for
   ok> sifting probe"

This should be very useful for all prom commands.

Thanks, Tracy
