| I always get 503s.  When I check the vmlog, I see backend server not
| available.  To further test, I upped the timeout values in a basic vcl just
| in case that was the problem.  No change.

Solaris doesn't support setting the TCP timeouts, so changing those
won't actually make any difference.

| My question is, how can I figure out why I'm getting backend server not
| available?  If I add a probe, I still see no outbound requests and backends
| start at healthy and then become sick shortly after (where they stay).

Run varnishlog and look at the output (or post it here).
