Good Morning,

Thanks to Joe Astrologo. I modified /etc/default/nfs, changed parameter NFS_CLIENT_VERSMAX from 4 to 3. It solves the problem for now.
I am working on downloading ONTAP 6.5.1R2P14.

Enclosed please review Joes reply:

Solaris 10 comes with native NFS client version 4. There is a known bug with Netapp Filers .
The filers can't handle the psuedo NFS mounts features of version 4 and panic..
Workaround is to stipulate nfs version 3 in /etc/default/nfs file on Solaris 10 box.
Tou can also upgrade your version of ONTAP to 6.5.1R2p14 i believe, which has the fix.

Good Morning,
I have a Solaris 10 on an Ultra 5 box. Try to mount a share on Netapp F840 filer, it crashes the filer.
