The FIRST thing to check when a panic happens is your hardware.  Often you'll see a diagnostic message when the self-test happens on power up.

Most often the problem is a failing hard drive, failing RAM, or a failing system board, in that order.  A marginal power supply, however, can also cause this easily.

It could also be a software problem and this would be my #1 suspicion if you've recently made changes to the kernel or configuration, or installed any new hardware drivers.  

Remember, a USER MODE program cannot cause this problem on a Solaris box.  A panic is an unrecoverable fault in the kernel or it's protected subsystem.

By the way:

Panic[cpu0]/thread=0x3003bc80: panic dump timeout

leads be to suspect you have a disk or SCSI controler problem that is causing the dump to fail.  Check out the disk, it's the #1 failure.

If you don't have a current backup, make one FAST!!
