Unable to reboot Solaris


we have a sun sparc solaris 10 machine and recently there was a power failure and one of the server domain was down. So today morning i have powered up the domain and it returned me to ok prompt then i have booted the machine with disk from devalias, the system was up as normal and no error messages in message file.

Before this failure server was in good condition and never throwed these errors before when we rebooted.

All the mount points we available as it was in vfstab. To be on safer side i have rebooted the machine and it never came back up and from xscf console i had a look and the system got repeating these messages as below and never load up.

Feb 7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/sysevent:default: Method or service exit timed out. Killing contract 19.
Feb 7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/cryptosvc:default: Method or service exit timed out. Killing contract 22.
Feb 7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/coreadm:default: Method or service exit timed out. Killing contract 23.
Feb 7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/power:default: Method or service exit timed out. Killing contract 24

Then i have powered the whole domain down. Not able to understand what the issue was and any help will be great.
