Have you tried:
/usr/platform/`arch -k`/sbin/prtdiag -v

Which is how one ran prtdiag on Solaris 8 and below?

I've read that prtdiag does not work on all platforms.

Was it working previously...

Have you recently applied any patches ?

Is picl correctly installed:
# pkginfo -l | grep picl
DESC: PICL Daemon, Libraries, prtpicl client and plug-in modules

If so a bounce of picld may resolve issue.

Otherwise you may need to pkgrm/pkgadd picld p again to get a clean set up...

I think its picl installed properly.

root@sdp16a>pkginfo -l | grep picl
DESC: PICL Daemon, Libraries, prtpicl client and plug-in modules

It was working previously... then I upgraded the machine and installed some new patches. I did the same to the other machine in the cluster and every thing is Ok over there and the prtdiag command runs there error free.

Sorry I gave you the output of the A node the troubled nodes output is:

root@sdp16b>pkginfo -l | grep picl
DESC: PICL Daemon, Libraries, prtpicl client and plug-in modules

ok- so try a stop/ start of picl. It's the usual cause for prtdiag (and sunmc) issues.

You could also try a truss on your prtdiag and see what's happening.

often you'll see it's spinning on a door call - so you can then track that back. It's often picl - hence the restart.

another route if the picl stop/start doesn't work is to dive into the console and do a resetsc
