Machine is "vmware" vm guest. Storege was down and later it happened.

I saw this situation before when after oracle installation.

Hi Getrue,

If the storage was down I'd start by trying to find out what was done, either as part of the planned work or if it was an unplanned outage then what happened.

If it was a failure and a disk was replaced then you may have to recover from your last VMware copy or snapshot.

But I'd start by asking the storage guys what has happened.

Fix this service svc:/system/filesystem/usr:default.

Find out why it is in maintenance mode. svcs -xv svc:/system/filesystem/usr:default
Fix the problem, then clear it from maintenance mode, then reboot the system.

Might help.
