Thanks! I was actually lucky enough to stumble upon this bug description in
one of the readmes for a Solstice Backup patch. The funny (in hindsight)
thing is I saw that patch description Thursday morning around 3am when I was
beating my head against my desk and ignored it because it said the patch was
for Solaris 8.
/dev/lus wasn't being created, and the patch readme described a workaround
where one edits the /etc/devlink.tab file and removes a stray tab character
from the line for the 'lus' device. Apparently, the tab character is the
monkey wrench in the works.
Well, I'm happily backing up and restoring now. Thanks again.
