I’m a bit confused, AFAICR, "boot cdrom” at the ok-prompt should suffice… 
but it doesn’t seem to work:

{0} ok boot cdrom

SPARC T4-1, No Keyboard
Copyright (c) 1998, 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
OpenBoot 4.34.3, 32256 MB memory available…

results in this message:

Boot device: /pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@4/scsi@0/disk@p6  File and args:
The file just loaded does not appear to be executable.  

Do I need to do something special to get it working?
