Information in this document applies to any platform.
If Solaris OS was newly installed the issue maybe OS is missing some packages/patches. Boot server from a Oracle source media, such as, CDROM/DVD then check if still have issue or not.
A Solaris host with seemingly functional FC HBA ports is unable to display those ports with the 'cfgadm' or 'fcinfo' commands.
# cfgadm -al (NOTE: No FC HBA ports listed below)
Ap_Id Type Receptacle Occupant Condition
c0 scsi-bus connected configured unknown
c0::dsk/c0t0d0 CD-ROM connected configured unknown
usb0/1 unknown empty unconfigured ok
usb0/2 unknown empty unconfigured ok
usb0/3 unknown empty unconfigured ok
usb0/4 unknown empty unconfigured ok
# cfgadm -al -o show_FCP_dev
cfgadm: Configuration administration not supported
# fcinfo hba-port (Solaris 10 and above only)
No Adapters Found.
Despite the output above, the FC HBA ports are visible with 'luxadm -e port' and target devices (disk/tape) are functional for regular I/O.
NOTE: The above is true for SPARC. On x64/x86 systems, even the 'luxadm' output will not report any FC HBA ports.
