This document aids troubleshooting of Solaris Cluster node panics with the following message:

This panic string can be on system consle and/or in /var/adm/messages. It is also in vmcore. coredump. 
In almost all cases this occurs when ucmmd cluster daemon exits. Ucmmd like many other cluster daemons is being watched by failfast driver that triggers a system coredump when the daemon being registered does not return to the driver in a timeout value of 30 seconds. There are many reasons why ucmmd exits. This article will give you steps to find the underlying cause. This article does not cover much less frequently seen scenarios where ucmmd daemon is accidentally killed, victimized by a customer's script or dumps application core which likely to be a bug, or where system runs out of resources and it simply cannot run.

When you have a panic caused by ucmmd exit (died) you may see a single node panic, multiple nodes panic or all cluster nodes panic. You may see this on clusters configured with Oracle RAC and/or Oracle Cluster Ready Services (CRS) systems running oracle parallel database.
