The solution that I took was to kill the sf880drd daemon (isn't that redundant?) using /etc/init.d/sf880dr stop and then moving S77sf880dr to s77sf880dr.  It would appear that sf880drd is the 'magic' behind the little V880 push-buttons and LEDs, so my thought would be to start it back up before trying any PCI hot-plugging/swapping actions...

This is apparently a known issue with V880s right now (not at all related to the T3) and has no known solution (so I most likely would have gotten it from sunsolve if I could get there)

Joshua had a problem that turned out to be the CPU/Mem connection quality - and they replaced the backplane and CPU board...

Thanks all!

I'm not completely certain that it's related to the T3, it could be the internal disk - but I can't be certain at this point....
