Zone hang issue

I have a solaris10 zone running an oracle db in it. The zone hangs after some time the db is started and i 'm unable to log into the zone after that so i have to halt and restart the zone along with db .. but after few hrs again it hangs. What would be the reason for it. I did svcs -xv and got following result which i do not think could be the issue of zone hang.

svc:/network/rpc/keyserv:default (RPC encryption key storage)
 State: maintenance since Wed Apr 28 00:06:42 2010
Reason: Start method exited with $SMF_EXIT_ERR_CONFIG.
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M keyserv
   See: /var/svc/log/network-rpc-keyserv:default.log
Impact: 1 dependent service is not running:

How do you log in to the zone ?
How does it fails ?
What is the zone status ?
Are there processes still running in the zone ?
Is there some capping set in the zone configuration ?

Asnwers to Jillagre's questions

How do you log in to the zone ?  zlogin, zlogin -C & ssh from putty
How does it fails ?    After few hrs i'm unable to connect to zone using any of the above methods

What is the zone status ?  The status remains running

Are there processes still running in the zone ?  The smon, pmon processes of the 
db continues to run 

Is there some capping set in the zone configuration:  There is no capping sent
