Does the HBA is recognized in the OS.
if you are not sure, prtdiag -v and grep for version in /var/adm/messages, then check the fcinfo hba-port

what you get if you issue the following command:
#fcinfo hba-port

Yes there is a useful command :

# cfgadm -a [to see the appropriate port to enable]
You can use the man to get the help but in all cases if the cards have been disabled you can enable'em:
# cfgadm -c connect name_of_port
# cfgadm -c configure name_of_port
The man pages in the top of the page, they are very useful for thorough details.
