Hi Folks,

Firstly, a big thanks to all who responded. It was precisely the
direction I needed to look in.

To recall, after installing Solaris 10 on a V125, I was getting this
error upon rebooting:

Cannot mount root on /pci@1c,600000/scsi@2/disk@1,0:a fstype ufs

panic[cpu0]/thread=180e000: vfs_mountroot: cannot mount root

000000000180b950 genunix:vfs_mountroot+32c (800, 200, 0, 185dc00,
1883800, 18afc00)

0000000000000200 000000000180ba10 genunix:main+98 (1814198, 1014800,
18364c0, 18ac400, 183b400, 1814000)
  %l0-3: 0000000070002000 0000000000000001 0000000000000000
  %l4-7: 0000000000000001 0000000001075800 0000000000000060

The problem was that I had the wrong disk set as the 'boot-device' in
the OBP.

The solution was re-setting the OBP defaults by issuing the
"set-defaults" command.

Pretty simple really :-).

Much thanks, Craig
