warning -- main memory zone is not free message appears if you used something like wwidmgr
just issue the following commands:
P000> init
P000> boot

Zrida,
you need to go into WWIDMGR, because the SRM console does not have much 'intelligence' when it has to deal with Fibre Channel devices.

As you have already seen you need to INITIALIZE your system when you want to boot after you were in WWIDMGR. On the other hand you also need to INITIALIZE your system when you have shutdown the operating system and want to deal with WWIDMGR, again. Don't worry - it has always worked that way except on some systems were you have to enter 'SET MODE DIAG' before you can call the WWIDMGR.

In case you are looking for help with the WWIDMGR - a user manual should be on the firmware CD-ROM (I think it is in 'DOC/WWIDMGR.PDF').
