Hi All,

I recently picked up an old Dell Poweredge 4300 with a PERC2 raid card- 
its actually a rebadged adaptec card.  Ive decided to run Solaris 9 on 
it, but cant get solaris to recognize the raid card.  It uses the 
percraid (adaptecs aacraid) driver - Ive loaded the driver and can run 
the afacli configuration utilities to build a raid-5 set.  Now - I cant 
get Solaris to see the new disk-set.  It builds it on /dev/rdsk/c4t0d0, 
but I "format ..." returns a "No disks found!" error.  Im missing 
something...  Anyone have any ideas??    Ive tried re-configuring the 
OS (boot -r), but that doesnt work either.
