If there was never a FC disk attached to the system, you might need to reboot the server to make the LUN visible. The easiest way would be:
Code:
# touch /reconfigure
# init 6

Before rebooting you can try if devfsadm makes the LUN visible.

While running the below command i get some permission denied error.

Code:
bash-3.2# devfsadm
devfsadm: open failed for /dev/.devfsadm_dev.lock: Permission denied

Is the OS running in a zone? You can use devfsadm only from the global zone and map the LUN to a local zone from there.

yes this is a zone.

Code:
bash-3.2# zoneadm list -cv
  ID NAME             STATUS     PATH                           BRAND    IP    
   1 hostnamesvr01     running    /                              native   shared

Did i have to mount the LUN inside the Zone ? Thank you..

You should see the LUN in the global zone and map it to the local zone.
