This block is purely informative : it displays information that was gathered by
SCSI inquiries

This block is purely informative too : it displays information about the path
coalescing done by the tool

This block shows what is currently being instructed to the device-mapper : the
devmap creation is failing here.
 
are your connection set to Solaris in the HSV110 ?
is your kernel configured with REPORT_LUN ?
does a simple dd on a ghost path fail or block ?
do a simple multipath map without the ghosts work ?
do a simple multipath map with non SAN disks work (don't do writes, don't mount :) ?
