due to the errors in the vfstab you should check the vfstab by do the following :
1- insert your CD in the cdrom driver
2- go to OK prompt and write boot cdrom -s
3- fsck the slice if you want to check the file system
4- mount /dev/dsk/c2t0d0s0 "for example " /a
5- TERM=sun
6- export TERM
7- vi /a/etc/vfstab

and verify that the records in the file is correct.

dear all,

I edited the vfstab file and when i boot the server after that,it goes well means it ask for User name and then password. By the time of entering password,it automatically reboots.

Actually this server was attached to the Storedge A1000.which has 4 internal hard disk. Size of one hard disk is 36.4 GB.

But in iostat -En output it showing 109.13 Gb means almost the size of one H/D is missig. Also there is amber blowing in the storage. There is no Internal Hard disk in the server. It connected to the Storage.

Can anyone suggest me, how to resolve this issue....

Thank you all
