I heard about dn_setup -init, this solved the problem for some people.

I NEVER USED AND I DON'T KNOW HOW WILL AFFECT TO YOUR SYSTEM. FIND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS COMMAND BEFORE USING IT.

Well,
dn_setup -init is a very destructive command and can cause a lot of grief if not handled properly.
Please ensure that you have the details of all the filesystem domains. and all the devices.

Do you have the outputs from before on the following ??
#hwmgr -view dev
#ls -la /etc/fdmns/*/*

I would suggest please also delete the following hardware device datgabase related files before doing the dn_setup -init
rm /etc/hw.db
rm /etc/dec*
rm /etc/dccd.*
rm /etc/dccd.*
rm /etc/dcdd.*
rm /etc/dfsc.*
rm /etc/dfsl.*
rm /dev/disk/*
rm /dev/rdisk/*
rm /dev/tape/*
rm /dev/ntape/*
rm /dev/changer/*

after this if you do the dn_setup -init and also the hwmgr -scan scsi
you should get some good devices and DDR database.
I would also suggest you rebuilding the kernel at this point.
