Thanks to all those who replied. Heck, I'd buy Sun just for this list :).

 1) boot from cdrom. edit /vfstab to point to original devices
 2) ok boot disk

Problem being that the computer is in a colo and getting a cdrom would take
time. I'll try doing a netboot.

Thanks again,

Subject: solaris volume manager config error

Hi Managers,

Rookie question: I was mirroring the boot disk on a 420R. Seems like I
screwed something up. 

How do I boot from the unmirrored device. ie /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 and not
/dev/md/dsk/d8 ?

Thank you,

Rebooting with command: boot
