The server is not starting all services

Hi everybody
When I Boot/restart my HP-UX server when it reaches the step described below doesn't go through. When I kick a key in the console it show me the login prompt and a can log on but I cannot access the server from the network, I can only do it via LAN console.
Please, can you help me to solve this problem?

HP-UX Start-up in progresstware clause in DFARS 252.227-7013.

Configure system crash dumps .......................................OK
Mount file systems .....................................................

Re: The server is not starting all services

Pls see ur /etc/inittab file for default run level it should be like this init:3:initdefault:
post the /etc/rc.log file for errors.

The /etc/inittab file is ok.
in /etc/rc.log the content is below.
I've tried to run mountall -m but still stack

Old /etc/rc.log moved to /etc/rc.log.old

As the mounting fails
it could be that your fstab is broken.
Btw. afaik there is no mountall command or alias on HP-UX.
Issue mount -a instead.
Also issue /sbin/cat /etc/fstab
and look if all the entries are valid.
Maybe a volume couldn't be activated?
Do you have an LVM layout?
Do you have your root disks mirrored?
Maybe a mirror disk is broken and the quorum for vg00 couldn't be fullfilled on activation?
You then could try to activate it by
/sbin/vgchange -q n -a y vg00
Maybe a filesystem didn't pass the fsck?
There can be all sorts of reasons,
and it's difficult to tell without further information.
You should check /etc/rc.log and /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log and dmesg
for any hints what caused init to hang.
Of course that would require to get /var mounted first.
Also note that syslog.log gets moved to OLDsyslog on every reboot.
So you might wish to save the syslog.log
