On lw8 systems (V1280, E2900, Netra 1280, Netra 2900), lom>console command may return that Solaris is not active when Solaris is active:

lom>console
Solaris is not active

From showlogs on the lom, we see:
lom: [ID 336549 local0.error] sun.serengeti.TunnelSwitchFailedException: Tunnel Switch Failed: Invalid IO Board Selected

From showsc -v on the lom, we see:
Solaris Host Status: Powered Off

We know instead that Solaris is up and running on the server.

From Solaris /var/adm/messages, we see:
picld[2051]: [ID 383862 daemon.error] led ioctl failed: Connection timed out
sgsbbc: [ID 394589 kern.info] NOTICE: Solaris failed to send a message (0x6/0x6005) to the System Controller. Error: 145, Message Status: 145

Additionally, on the Solaris side we are missing these messages at boot time:
lw8: [ID 190882 kern.notice] Unretrieved lom log history follows ...
lw8: [ID 653806 kern.notice] Main, up 9 days 12:37:27, Memory 6,574,848
