that, on Solaris 9 OS, I am not able to see my all hdd's which are visible on
Solaris 8 (original environment). I am not sure whether it is because of some
storage driver issue or some other problem. I have some disks from EMC and
some disks are from hitachi storages.

sure about the compactibility of these drivers with Solaris 9 OS. Do I need to
upgrade or reinstall these so that I may be able to see all my disks in format
command output? I have already tried devfsadm command but no luck.
anybody faced such type of problem after OS upgrade? Please suggest.

..........And the culprit was sd.conf file :-).

liveupgrade, the sd.conf file is kept as default configuration file and will
not be upgraded unless we copy-paste it from the original boot environment.
(This is not documented anywhere, but I heard similar cases from some other
guys also,,, I am not recalling where from).

Thanks to all who paid attention
and replied to my query. 

Special thanks goes to: 
1. Baker,Darryl
He suggested: "Did you make sure your sd.conf changes
are on the new root drive?"
