AIX has the lscfg command, and HP has the ioscan command.  Is there a similar command for Sun's SunOS and Solaris 2.5.1?

Well, I don't know what the HP and AIX commands really do, but I hope this will answer your question nevertheless.

All devices are logged during startup. So you can always see either by reading /var/adm/messages what devices are there or using dmesg (which is a message buffer display).

Then there is the probe-scsi command in the boot monitor, which you may not like since you have to halt the machine (don't try
Stop-A, probe-scsi and go, it will most likely crash your system).

Last not least there exist public domain software, in particular sysinfo lists all the devices, here is an example for my Ultra 1:

        Device Information

SUNW,Ultra-1 is a "SUNW,501-2836"
    openprom is a "Open Boot PROM" device
    sbus0 is a "SBus" system bus
        SUNW,fdtwo0 (rfd0c) is a Floppy disk drive
        eeprom is a "EEPROM" device
        zs0 is a "Zilog 8530" serial communications chip
        zs1 is a "Zilog 8530" serial communications chip
        sc is a "Sun SCSI-2" SCSI controller disk controller
        espdma is a "SCSI DMA" pseudo device
            esp0 is a "Generic SCSI" SCSI controller disk controller
                c0t0d0 (sd0) is a "SUN2.1G" 2.0 GB disk drive
                c0t6d0 (sd6) is a disk drive
        ledma is a "LANCE Ethernet DMA" pseudo device
            le0 is a "AMD Lance Am7990" 10Mb/sec Ethernet network interface
        SUNW,bpp is a "Sun Bidirectional Parallel Port"
        cgsix0 is a "GX 8-bit Accelerated Color Graphics [cgsix]" frame buffer
    kbd is a "Sun Type-5 Unix" Keyboard

Probably sysinfo is your first choice.

Hope this helps,
