That multipath.conf entry seems to be missing some key elements:

     device {
                vendor                  "SUN"
                product                 "CSM200_R"
                product_blacklist       "Universal Xport"
                features                "1 queue_if_no_path"
                path_checker    rdac
                hardware_handler        "1 rdac"
                path_grouping_policy    group_by_prio
                prio                    "rdac"
                failback                immediate

That would imply you are using the 'readsector0' checker program
instead of the 'rdac' one.

The multipath.conf above assumes that this controller is indeed an RDAC
one. I don't have one so the configuration might be completly wrong.
