I was just recently trying to upgrade our NetBackup Master/Media server
from Solaris 9 to Solaris 10 and ran into problems with the snap copy
(flashbackup) drivers.   Prior to the upgrade, the configuration looked

        Solaris 9 09/05 with latest patch cluster
        vxfs 5.0MP3RP2
        QLogic 2340 FC hba's

The upgrade was performed using Solaris LiveUpgrade to Solaris 10 U7 with
the latest patch cluster.  After booting Solaris 10 I re-installed the
vxfs software to the same release and re-installed the SNC modules thinking
it may be OS release specific.  Everything seemed to be working ok until
the first schedule ran that did a Flashbackup, at which point the server
went down with a panic in the SNC driver attempting to add a cache device.
The behavior was definitely consistent in terms of each time it went to
initialize a cache device it triggered a kernel panic.

I was getting ready to put a call in on this but was curious if anyone
else had run up against this problem?
