    some question from a solaris-newbie:

    Is it possible to take the harddisks from a Sun 280R and put i in a
    Sunfire V210 without reinstalling the OS?
    If yes, to what have i pay attention to?

  2. No, the disk differ in interfaces. FC_AL versus SCSI.

    You woud be better off using a flash archive to do this. man flarcreate and
    flash_archive for details. It is designed to handle this type of transfer.

    If you don't use a flash archive, you will have to be ready to rebuilt the
    device paths and the path_to_inst file
