Or is it possible that someone did a pkgremove on SUNWkio on the 
primary?  Have you compared the packages on the primary and the secondary?

If you ran the following command on the primary and the secondary and 
ran a diff against the two, is there a difference?

for i in `pkginfo -l |grep SUNWkio | awk -F: '{ print $2 }'`;do pkginfo 
-l $i;done > /var/tmp/SUNWkio.out
