Top of the morning,

After a long night I was able to come to a conclusion and solution thanks

There were several others that replied with the same fix so thanks to you

SunDoc 48586  Solaris 2.6 Patch 105181-33 may hang during a Reconfiguration

Solution was to boot cdrom -s and edit the /etc/system file add the
following entry:
set kobj_map_space_len=0x200000

Then boot the system.  I had a few issues with DiskSuite and my mirrors
being out a sync
but was able to get past the configuring devices message.  This was a work
around, the fix
is to load PATCH 105181-34.

I don't believe my problem stemmed from the GigaSwift Card or Drivers,
instead I believe we have never did a boot -r since we have loaded the OS
and patched.
I plan on trying to configure the GigaSwift card this Sat.

Thanks Again to all that have replied and helped me out.
