We are using the V480 with Solaris 8 & with a emulex LP9802E HBA. This is 
connected to a san switch and to STK L700 tape library which is having HP LTO2 

We had a CPU issue and SUN has replaced it. Now the system is working fine. 

We have enabled persistent binding since day one. There is no issue with the 
zoning. I can confirm that because after the reboot when I run EMC Grab for 
Slaris the SCSI ID returns back to normal. I have checked this several time and

that the ID returns back to normal while running one of the following commands.

Running Command prtpicl -v..
Running Command prtpicl -v -c scsi-fcp.
Running Command luxadm probe.
Running Command luxadm qlgc_s_download.
Running Command cfgadm -al -o show_FCP_dev.
Running Command cfgadm -al.
Running Command cfgadm -vl.
