Hi,

This doesn't looks to be an veritas issue at initial stage..  would say to concentrate on storage settings only..

what is array model & settings ? have you followed the hardware technote ?

I totally agree with Gaurav - check array settings.

Having seen this error previously, the only two options that worked for me were to either reboot the system or uninstall and reinstall powerpath.

Are you able to see the devices via any of the following commands?

fcinfo hba-port

fcinfo remote-port -sl -p "WWN from the above command"

or for each lun you can use,

luxadm display /dev/rdsk/c2t500601604BE01805d0s2 (do all paths report back as O.K.)
