I did:

ok> devalias see which device was matching my rootdisk a.k.a. c0t4d0.
This corresponded to "disk4". Also noted a "vx-rootdisk" set
to the same physical device. Veritas (vx) (3.0.4) is on this
server. So then I tried:

ok> setenv boot-device vx-rootdisk
ok> reset

This worked.

I'll assume that the following will also work but can't
try it now, since it's back up and users are back on:

ok> setenv boot-device disk4

My original distress call:

Enterprise 3500

Ran patch 103346-27 to fix a clock problem.
This flashed the prom.

Power cycled the machine.

Now says can't open boot device.

It's set to "disk"

diag-switch? is false (not sure if this matters)

Any help appreciated.
