I could be succesful copying the damage disk content to a new disk with

dd bs=512 conf=noerror,sync if=/dev/da6 of=/dev/da5

da5 is the new disk and it is an extarnal cabinet disc 80 PIN SCSI SCA

then I did

sunlabel da6 > /tmp/label
sunlabel -R da5 /tmp/label

everything went perfect.

I took the new disk out form cabinet and I open my Sun Blade 1000 to 
replace the boot disk...
what a surprise!!!

the 80 PIN SCA interface won't fit in the internal socket!!

the inside boot disk socket is different I do not know even the name of 
the socket SCSI  interface...

what kind of SCSI disk should I look for to replace the internal sun 
blade 1000 disks ?

thank you very much
