SVM - there are no existing databases.

I am facing problems with SVM installed on vmware workstation on intel platform. I have created replicas and a mirror volume using unmountable slices. But when I reboot my hardware I am not able to execute any SVM cmd's getting an error "there are no existing databases."
Below are o/p's of few cmd's

bash-3.00# echo | format
Searching for disks...done

0. c1t0d0 <DEFAULT cyl 1824 alt 2 hd 255 sec 63>

There is a service mdmonitor which is in maintenance mode, and not able to bring it online though all the services it is dependant are online.
