Can you provide some useful command outputs from the system so that we can see the possible reasons?
what OS? how you determined its offline , etc...

what type of hba are you using?

put the output of following command:
fcinfo hba-port

check /var/adm/messages if the hba has gone offline suddenly.

Can you please execute this command:

# luxadm -e port

And see if you can see the HBA from there ??

is it the HBA that disappeared or the LUNs Mapped to that HBA ?

if it's the LUNs disappeared, then you may want to consider removing the cable and put it back to initiate again ?
