The problem is solved. Jim VandeVegt's mail provided me the essential

This led me to the following document:

The NVRAM configuration parameter 'disk-led-assoc' was in fact missing one
controler. This was easily fixed by issuing the appropiate eeprom command
and a subsequent reconfigure boot. Since then the machine identifies disks
in Slot#12-19 as well. 

Thanks Jim and everybody else for their feedback!
