Boot-archive Problem

I disabled the boot-archive service by using

#svcadm disable svc:/system/boot-archive:default

then i rebooted my system but i am unable to boot. It throws the following errors


then it automatically asked me for the maintenance mode passwd.

i logged into failsafe mode and tried the following command

#svcadm enable svc:/system/boot-archive:default

but it doesn't works.

how can i enable the boot archive again

thanks in advance

Did you re-enable the console login services?
svcadm enable console-login
svcadm restart console-login
