    I would assume at least these...

    system SUNWluxd Sun Enterprise Network Array
    sf Device Driver
    system SUNWluxdx Sun Enterprise Network Array
    sf Device Driver (64-bit)
    system SUNWluxl Sun Enterprise Network Array
    socal Device Driver
    system SUNWluxlx Sun Enterprise Network Array
    socal Device Driver (64-bit)
    system SUNWluxop Sun Enterprise Network Array
    firmware and utilities
    system SUNWluxox Sun Enterprise Network Array
    libraries (64-bit)

    But they might need others, check see if you have them
    Also, theese are for sun storage, like A5000, there are som other ones
    that might be needed depending on what kind of fcal you are connecting.

    for instance, if its a A3500FC, then you need the RM6 packages.

    And you might want to put on the SAN packages if its using mpxio.

    You probably need to manually install SUNWmdi (and possibly SUNWmdix),
    as well as SUNWsan. The default JumpStart tends to skip these on older
    OS releases if the devices that need those packages are not present
    at build.

    Mainly a fcal product you can check with probe-fcal-all on the OK-prompt
    Check out for the (Sun) host adapter with Solaris is supported in the
    FE-handbook

    Secondly did you install the second time exactly the same way (i.e.
    distribution, core, dev, end user, entire???)
    Mainly for fcal you require an Entire (plus OEM) installation.
