#boot cdrom -s
I tried executing fsck -y there.But it did not work.
It does not give me any error...but it just comes back to the prompt wothout displaying anything..

Now when i tried booting from cd it gave me errors like
WARNING:/usr/sbin/2fs mount -a failed
svc:/system/filesystem/local:default method /lib/svc/method/fs -local" failed

what could be the problem?
Any suggestions of how i can resolve this issue?
HELP ME!!Smilie

wild thought:
the -y option in fsck is for "Assume a yes response to all questions asked by fsck".

Could it be that here is your problem. Try to run in without -y.

lofi - Loopback file driver DESCRIPTION
The lofi file driver exports a file as a block device. Reads and writes to the block device are translated to reads and writes on the underlying file. This is useful when the file contains a file system image. Exporting it as a block device through the lofi file driver allows normal system utilities to operate on the image through the block device (like fstyp(1M)fsck(1M), and mount(1M). This is useful for accessing CD-ROM and FAT floppy images. See lofiadm(1M) for examples. File block device entries are contained in /dev/lofi, while /dev/rlofi contains the character (or raw) device entries. Entries are in the form of decimal numbers which are assigned through lofiadm(1M). When created, these device entries are owned by root, in group sys, and have permissions 0600. While ownership, group, and permission settings can be altered, there are possible ramifications. See lofiadm(1M) for more information. FILES
/dev/lofictl Master control device /dev/lofi/n Block device for file n /dev/rlofi/n Character device for file n /kernel/drv/lofi 32-bit driver /kernel/drv/lofi.conf Driver configuration file. (Should not be altered.) /kernel/drv/sparcv9/lofi 64-bit driver ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsr, SUNWcarx.u | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
lofiadm(1M), fsck(1M), fstyp(1M), mount(1M), newfs(1M), attributes(5), lofs(7FS) NOTES
Just as you would not directly access a disk device that has mounted file systems, you should not access a file associated with a block device except through the lofi file driver. For compatability purposes, a raw device is also exported along with the block device. For example, newfs(1M) requires one. SunOS 5.10 30 Jul 1999 lofi(7D)
