          You don't appear to have a kernel issue.
          It would seem to be a hardware issue with your storage kit.

            It isn't only Solaris 10; I'm getting the same errors on 9 connected to a 6920:

            I've put in a ticket with Sun. We're running Sun Cluster 3.1; are you?

              you need to download patch 119130-17 for Solaris 10(SPARC) or another patch for Solaris 9 and intel platform.

              this will resovle the issue.

                emmalleres@gmail.comThis thread was originally posted more than two years ago. The O.P. has never returned to update the thread though they have been active in the forums since that time (click their username).
                The suggested patch would be of value only if the system was installed with Solaris 10 Update 2 or older and had never been patched. Rev-17 of patch 119130 is/was from 2006, which can be seen by reading the README for it.

                119130-19 was from May 2006
                [http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-21-119130-19-1|http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-21-119130-19-1]
                119130-16 was from Feb 2006

                The only information was the excerpt provided in the initial post. It still appears to have been an issue with the storage peripheral.

                  The messages point to a SAN / Storage related issue. Do the switches or array report any issue?

                  It looks like you are using the Qlogic native cards so would need to contact your storage vendor who will be able to help narrow down the issue.
