In the old Sun world devices 4 & 5 were usually reserved for tape devices,
so thats why there is no disk5. I would suggest changing your id to 0 as
this was the id originally for the first external disk on SS5/20 and earlier
systems. The reason is the earlier systems with external disks only usually
started with 0 as there disk id.

Subject: [SunHELP] [Q] how to setup external disk as bootable disk?
We have SUN Sparc 5 with Solaris 2.6 installed. This computer has one 1GB
internal hard disk (SCSI ID 3) and external 4 GB hard disk (SCSI ID 5). I
used "ufsdummp and ufsrestore" duplicate image from internal hsik to
external disk. and also use "installboot" make this external disk
bootable. After I reboot the system and use "devalias" to check. There
have "disk0, disk1, disk2,disk3", but NO "disk5" (relate to external HD).
If I type "boot /iommu/sbus/..../sd at 5,0", it will boot up correctly.
Does their has way I can make this external hard disk (SCSI 5) bott as
