Solaris 10, start inetd in a zone not working

Hello all,

I`ve the following problem - I cannot start inetd in any way possible:

bash-3.00# svcs inetd
STATE          STIME    FMRI
offline        Jul_30   svc:/network/inetd:default
bash-3.00# svcadm enable -r inetd
bash-3.00# svcs inetd
STATE          STIME    FMRI
offline        Jul_30   svc:/network/inetd:default
bash-3.00# svcadm -v enable -r inetd
svc:/network/inetd:default enabled.
svc:/network/loopback enabled.
svc:/system/filesystem/local enabled.
svc:/milestone/single-user enabled.
svc:/system/identity:node enabled.
svc:/system/filesystem/minimal enabled.
svc:/system/filesystem/usr enabled.
svc:/system/boot-archive enabled.
svc:/system/filesystem/root enabled.
svc:/system/device/local enabled.
svc:/milestone/devices enabled.
svc:/system/manifest-import enabled.
svc:/milestone/sysconfig enabled.
svc:/milestone/name-services enabled.

This is in an zone, on the global inetd is working fine.
Also i cannot seem to find the start up script in /lib/svc/method/
Any help will be much appreciated.

It seems we have the same issue. See this:
SMF: How to start inetd and all its dependents?

Did you change the zonepath? As I remember the problem occurred after I moved the zone to a new zonepath.

As far as I know the zones haven`t been moved, but I will have to look deeper in that since this is happening on 4 zones and all of them are on different globals.

It's a tough one. Gurus please help!!

I did repair a corrupt repository using the default repository (see below), still not working.

# cp /lib/svc/seed/nonglobal.db /etc/svc/repository.db 
# reboot (only reboot zone)
