Someone from the list was kind enough to point me that this is a known bug:

My base machine is a 280R 10/01 with VxVM Patch Rev. 03 (DBED 2.2).
Apparently, the latest patch set is plagued with problems in that is better
explained on SunSolve via the bug-ID mentioned.  The work-around is to have
certain vx-commands use /usr/lib and by explicitly declaring a
LD_LIBRARY_PATH in root's profile.

Thank you.


--- Initial Summary:---

Silly me..... just found out that after this specific Flash Install I did
not have a default profile. And my LD_LIBRARY_PATH was blank (Is this
normal? I never had this problem before in several Flash Installs that I've
done the past year...)...

Thanks to most of you who pointed me to the right path.
