Short answer: No! I just wasn't waiting long enough for format to through
I ran format again and it spit out the original error 20 times, then a wrong
magic number error:
scsi: [ID 107833 kern.warning] WARNING: /pci@1f,4000/scsi@3/sd@9,0 (sd8):
Corrupt label; wrong magic number
and then happily proceeded to format the disk...
pass 0 - pattern = 0xc6dec6de
pass 1 - pattern = 0x6db6db6d
Total of 0 defective blocks repaired.
Thanks to Bob Payne, Tobias Kronwitter and Darren Dunham for their replies.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdsk/c0t9d0s2
Which did work, once but I could not repeat it again.
My appreciation to the list and big shout out to everyone who is away from
