Mounting a SAN Vdisk to Solaris 9

To anybody,

I need some help of how to connect a Vdisk from a SAN (StorageWorks Command View EVA) that was created in the SAN. Tried to mount the:

*[root@sgb-trdb01]# mkdir /trmedtest*
*[root@sgb-trdb01]# mount /dev/dsk/c4t600508b40010891c00011000006b0000d0s7 /trmedtest*
and I receive this error:

mount: /dev/dsk/c4t600508b40010891c00011000006b0000d0s7 or /trmedtest, no such y

How do I see the remote Vdisk partition that is publish through the SAN being visible in Solaris 9, although it is not mounted yet? I think the Solaris 9 still cannot see the Remote Vdisk Resource. How do I confim this?

Your help is much appreciated.
Thank you.

    It's not clear - device /dev/dsk/c4t600508b40010891c00011000006b0000d0s7 is new or was created before.

    Check that system can access to this device.
    For example:
    format /dev/rdsk/c4t600508b40010891c00011000006b0000d0s7

    After select partiotion, print.
    Check what you can see.

    If format don't have access to this disk, check that this device is configured.

    cfgadm -al -o show_FCP_dev

    Possible, you need configure some FC devices that currently have status unconfigured

    cfgadm -c configure <device>

    Check path status to device:

    luxadm display /dev/rdsk/c4t600508b40010891c00011000006b0000d0s2
