The best answer that helped me track it down (came
from Chad):

I have run into this before, and I wish I could give
you a good way to 
find out what it is but I really don't know.  What I
do, and normally 
works, is type in your path along with sd@ and then
your SCSI ID then 



You had the sd@3 on there earlier and if the DVD-ROM
is at SCSI ID 3 
then you had it right but just missing the ,0 .  You
can find out what 
you need to have by your probe-scsi-all command.  It
will show you a 
number beside the device and that is the number you
will use after the @ 
sign.   You said you tried other combinations so I
don't know if you 
tried this or not.

What worked was appending disk@3,0:f to the end of the
devalias path, so using his example, you would have


Thanks for the help!

I have a Blade 2500 I want to install Solaris 10 on.
I don't think the blade is giving me the entire path
to a device.  What I have is an external DVD-ROM
that is connected to the onboard SCSI bus.  I can
the device with a probe-scsi-all, but probe-scsi-all
only returns /pci@1d,700000/scsi@4@1 which I think
an imcomplete path.  I've tried
/pci@1d,700000/scsi@4,1/sd@3 and that doesn't work.
I've tried other combinations as well.
