To enable it, edit the file /kernel/drv/fp.conf file. At the end it should say:

Now this turns on mpxio for all fiber channel, if you are running internal FC drives do this in the same file:

name="fp" parent="/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@2" port=0 mpxio-disable="yes";

you get the parent info by doing an ls -ls on the /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s2 file (or what ever your internal disk is)
