System won't boot... syseventd is faulty

Dear all

I have a SPARC solaris 5.10 system. I did something very silly while editing the vfstab file I modified the root (/) filesystem mount point setting to be
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0      /dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0

notice the difference.
When I rebooted the system it fails with a service called syseventd failing to start and forcing me to maintenance mode. Of course i mounted the filesystem in maintenance mode and modified the vfstab file but the problem is still there.
Any help?

you might want to post the actual console error messages ...

also, did you confirm that /etc/vfstab is now correct? were any of the filesystems mirrored or striped?

what exactly did you change?

Ok guys i figured it out... the system had SVM mirroring and I was booting from the wrong disk.
