This will print a long list of devices. In there should be something similar to the following (the actual device will differ depending on what slot it is inserted in):
Now, we will select the device identified above which will allow us to see its children, or its directly attached devices.
ok select /pci@4,4000/SUNW,ifp@4
This should show the devices connected to the Fibre Channel card. The disks in the storage array should be visible through show-children.
