SMF: How to start inetd and all its dependents?

Hi, Here is the questions: inetd on this Solaris 10 zone fails to start at boot time. Inetd has 4 dependents not started. These 4 dependents have their own dependents not started. How it happened? How can I use one or a few command to start inetd and all its dependents and dependents' dependents? How to start them including inetd at boot time?

Thank you very much in advance!

# svcs -xv inetd
svc:/network/inetd:default (inetd)
 State: offline since Tue Jul 26 11:33:34 2011
Reason: Service svc:/system/sysidtool:net is starting.
  Path: svc:/network/inetd:default
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M inetd
Impact: 4 dependent services are not running:

Look at

to see why svc:/system/sysidtool:net is not starting.

# more /var/svc/log/system-sysidtool:system.log

[ Jul 26 10:24:46 Enabled. ]
[ Jul 26 11:33:34 Enabled. ]
[ Jul 26 13:33:37 Enabled. ]

It seems nothing useful.
