system booted up in "single user mode". login to your system and check for errors...

It is very strange because it happened after setting milestone:muli-user-server:default.

Before this operation everything was working fine.

Enter the passwd, as the system enters the maintenance mode if services are stopped abruptly. Currently u have brought you system up from OK prompt. You need to run the fsck. also run svcs -x and check what all services are under maintenance mode.
