I could not find a command that could do that directly. A alternative could be monitoring unified log 200  (nbftclnt) and then scan the debug log for pipe related error messages.

Here is the admin guide for SAN transport if you don't know it already:

Try this command from the server side:

nbftconfig -listclients -verbose

bptpcinfo seems like a good choice.

Use -r to remove obsolete entries and -u to discover.

More info and other options in NetBackup Commands Reference Guide http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5182 

To prevent loss/change of device paths, ensure Persistent Binding is done between OS and HBA.
Also see the reference to FT Clients in the Solaris chapter of NetBackup Device Configuration Guide  http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC5186 .
