Many thank to all the support from this list. Tim nails it directly! After installation of the patch he recommended I have been able to run scanner and mmrecov. Life is good again.

It's still a bit confusing to me how my predecessor was able to do basically the same install on an E-450 without any patches or drivers added to Solaris 9 out of the box. I'm guessing he may have overlooked that part of the procedure in his documentation. I'll never know since that system is toast.

Thanks again, Scotty.

No, I meant config.  It must be new with Solaris 10:

I haven't patched the server at all. Since I don't have Sun support I'll
check and see if they have any "free" ones.

Probably best.  Did you at least install from a Solaris 9 CD/DVD that
includes the latest roll-up?  It appears from that you
want at least:
