SUMMARY: bootable A3500 disk

Date: Thu Dec 13 2001 - 16:16:30 EST
Thank you to Steve Camp for responding.  After talking with Sun and
receiving the "Preparing the RAID Module as a Boot Device" document, the
system rebooted successfully.  The basic procedure for Solaris 8 and
RM6.22.1 is this (there is a slightly different on for earlier releases):

		1. Install OS and patches
		2. Install RM6
		3. Edit rmparams if greated than 8 LUN's needed
		4. Edit sd.conf if reboots need to be speeded up
		5. Run /etc/init.d/rdacctrl config
		6. Edit /etc/system to add the line:
			(where C coresponds to the controller
			number and T coresponds to the target number)
		7. Boot -r
		8. Update firmwares.

Thank you again.
