Server Hang @ init command

Guys,

I am having difficulties in bringing my server to OBP. The server hung infinitely after issuing init 0 command. I have already stopped all the applications running but to no avail. Smilie

Has anyone encountered this problem before? Appreciate if you could shed some lights.

Thanks,
HM

as i understand here hommin wants to get to OBP but not to reboot.
of cource its possible also to get to OBP by rebooting and then send "break" from rsc or from keyboard, but personally i think this is not solution ..

Hommi, what is server model and OS version. ?
after hanging do u able to type something? if you can give me output svcs -xv ..
these logs last logs by the system hang?

good luck

I can see from the shutdown message that you are using solaris 10.
Pls ensure that your kernel patch you use is of the latest.
Before you shutdown, what was the outpu of svcs -xv ?
There should not be much SMF services in maintenance mode, that would easily cause the system to hang / or too long to go down.
