/dev/sda3 doesn't look right to me. That's almost certainly a 'fdisk' or x86
partition, not a Solaris/VTOC slice, or a remapping of it as this portion of
the guide mentions:
During boot up, you should get something similar to:
hda: [PTBL] [523/255/63] hda1 hda2 < hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 > hda3 <Polaris: [s0]
hda9 [s1] hda10 [s2] hda11 [s3] hda12 [s6] hda13 [s7] hda14 >
Meaning (in this case): partition 3 (hda3) is a Solaris partition with 6 slices
(s0,s1,s2,s3,s6,s7). They are mapped to Linux devices hda9 to hda14.
In other words, you should be trying to mount the hda9 to hda14 devices (in
this example), *not* the hda3 device.

Unless you're doing something very strange, UFS filesystems do not appear at
the beginning of a Solaris fdisk partition.
