Alot of information missing.. you're using iSCSI san boot or FC san boot? confusing.. if its FC , you need to change fp.conf. was any changes made to scsi_vhci.conf at all? If you want to turn off MPxIO for your SAN boot, you need to boot off cd and manually change the respective configurations including vfstab etc, before you can boot. You cant simply a edit a single file and expect the boot from san.
