Bart, I'm not a Solaris guy so I cannot specifically address a specific fix, but I would look at the hardware network settings on your Solaris boxes. We had a problem with some HPUX systems with a particular switch where they would not auto-negotiate correctly. We ended up going into the bios on the systems and setting them to the 100/full duplex mode and then they ran fine. You may find your systems are set to some level of AUTO and that doesn't work well with switch.
There is generally a way to have the OS report what speed or connection the box is running at. This may confirm if the systems and the switch are having trouble negotiating a speed. HTH.
