We are using 3PAR SAN
As already hinted to by Xray, i suppose this is a zoning problem. Picture a "zone" in a SAN to be like a VLAN: some switch ports, adapters and LUN initiators (all identified via "WWN", which serves the same purpose as a MAC address does in a net) are allowed to communicate. As you moved your box it might well be that you use now different FC-switch ports and/or other parts of the fabric and depending on your setup the SAN admins may or may not have to change the zoning accordingly.

Your SAN admin should know this off the top of his head. Generally this is a problem you can only solve working hand in hand with your SAN admins. Except some general hints like the ones we already gave you there is pretty little we can do for you. Even if we would have the necessary knowledge too much depends on your setup, which we do not know in the necessary depth.

I hope this helps.

NAME
fp - Sun Fibre Channel port driver DESCRIPTION
The fp driver is a Sun fibre channel nexus driver that enables fibre channel topology discovery, device discovery, fibre channel adapter port management and other capabilities through well-defined fibre channel adapter driver interfaces. The fp driver requires the presence of a fabric name server in fabric and public loop topologies to discover fibre channel devices. In pri- vate loop topologies, the driver discovers devices by performing PLOGI to all valid AL_PAs, provided that devices do not participate in LIRP and LILP stages of loop initialization. CONFIGURATION
The fp driver is configured by defining properties in the fp.conf file. The fp driver supports the following properties: mpxio-disable Solaris I/O multipathing is enabled or disabled on fibre channel devices with the mpxio-disable property. Specifying mpxio-disable="no" activates I/O multipathing, while mpxio-disable="yes" disables the feature. Solaris I/O multipathing may be enabled or disabled on a per port basis. Per port settings override the global setting for the specified ports. The following example shows how to disable multipathing on port 0 whose parent is /pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@4: name="fp" parent="/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@4" port=0 mpxio-disable="yes"; manual_configuration_only Automatic configuration of SCSI devices in the fabric is enabled by default and thus allows all devices discovered in the SAN zone to be enumerated in the kernel's device tree automatically. The manual_configuration_only property may be configured to disable the default behavior and force the manual configuration of the devices in the SAN. Specifying manual_configuration_only=1 disables the automatic con- figuration of devices. FILES
