Here comes the summary of the problem with my box.

The reason why I can't probe the devices is simply, the card dos'nt have 
openboot support. Thats also the reason I can't boot with it. 
But once the glm driver is loaded i can use the disks. The be able to use 
the disk I'll do like this:
mount / /boot from IDE.
mount /var, /usr, /opt, /export and swap from SCSI 

This works fine and is for sure a preformence boost.

original question was:

I have just added a Symbios 53c895 to my Ultra 5 270.
The update of openboot to 3.29 went fine. The prblem is I can't probe scsi
devies, tryed with 'probe-scsi' and 'probe-scsi-all' and it just return to
ok promt without probing My 2 9.1Gb scsidisk.

The very strange thing is that i can use them in booted Solaris.
No problems to creat filsyetems or mount them.
Dose anyone have a clue?
