This is a Solaris 11.1 SRU 4.5 T4-1 SPARC server t4server1 with Oracle FC HBA Dual port,
both ports connected to a SAN to access a Netapp storage array:

c9 = emlxs1 (fp3) -> /devices/pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@8/SUNW,emlxs@0,1/fp@0,0:devctl
c8 = emlxs0 (fp2) -> /devices/pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@8/SUNW,emlxs@0/fp@0,0:devctl

There are several LUNs mapped from the storage to this server under mpxio control , ie:

This LUN is ssd10 :
"/scsi_vhci/ssd@g60a9800037537478742443536131576f" 10 "ssd"

At this point customer initiated manually a Solaris crash dump to collect information.


Netapp storage controller failure and controller fixed reappear into the fabric.
