The easiest way to do it with the prtpicl command.

prtpicl -v |grep disk
             disk-label (disk-label, 3d00000032)
              :devfs-path        /packages/disk-label
              :binding-name      disk-label
              :_class    disk-label
              :name      disk-label
          :bootpath      /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@0,0:a
          :boot-device   disk:a disk1:a
          :diag-device   disk0:f
          :disk  /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@0,0
          :disk0         /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@0,0
          :disk1         /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@1,0
          :disk2         /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@2,0
          :disk3         /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@3,0
              :SlotType  disk-slot
                 disk (fru, 3d000006fe)
                  :name  disk
              :SlotType  disk-slot
                 disk (fru, 3d00000701)
                  :name  disk
              :SlotType  disk-slot
              :SlotType  disk-slot

Thanks to Pascal Grostabussiat [] for pointing this
