Solaris 10 system boots into Maintenance mode

I have seen similar threads on this issue, but I have not seen a fix. Basically I am getting a lot of rcp bind errors. Below find the output of "svcs -xv". not sure where to begin:

Code:
# svcs -xv

Start by looking at this log file:
Code:
tail  /var/svc/log/network-rpc-bind:default.log

u should check all ur File Systems are available or not.
go into each mount point and check data is available or not.
check /etc/vfstab entries with df -h output.
i think its problem with mounting the FS at boot time.
comment the vfstab entries. export any ZFS mounts (if any)
try, svcadm clear filesystem/local:default and see if it comes up to multiuser first

Why ? svcs doesn't report any file filesystem/local:default issues.

svcs -xv is NOT truncated, that is the entire output.

Okay, so why don't you post the rpc-bind log file last lines ?
