Thank you everyone who responded.  We finally discovered the issue and
unfortunately I misunderstood the problem, but still received many great
answers. Unfortunately, due to my poor troubleshooting I was barking up the
wrong tree. When we double-checked the 3510 we discovered we still needed to
assign the lun to a hostid.

However that said, I still wanted to summarize all the information so
someone else can benefit from all your experiences.

1) Make sure your patches are up to date.  You can go to sunsolve and have
it scan to let you know if you have all the patches.

2) Several people suggested boot -r, touch /reconfigure and reboot,
devfsadm, devlinks followed by disks, and cfgadm.  Sometimes I still get a
kick out of how many ways Sun has to rebuild its device tree ;-)

3) If you have internal fiber drives you need to turn-off the mpxio on the
internal and enable the mpxio for the 3510.  You can edit
/kernel/drv/qlc.conf to disable the internal and /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf
for the 3510.

Lastly, here is a good command example that was given to me.

Try cfgadm -al and check to make sure that the disk devices listed under
your FC HBAs are shown as configured. If not, use:

cfgadm -c configure <controller id>

e.g. cfgadm -c configure c6 (if that is your FC HBA)

You can also configure one drive at a time using:

cfgadm -c configure c6::<disk WWN>

e.g. cfgadm -c configure c6::22000004cf9b6d17

Thank you again everyone. Have a great day,
