NIS/smtp services issue on Solaris 11


Few services not starting on new build Solaris 11 non-global zone. I uninstalled zone and reinstalled and still same issue, while global zone is working fine.

smpt service is going into maintenance mode and /var/svc/log/network-smtp:sendmail.log shows that it tries and then dead
[ Jan 14 22:13:40 Executing start method ("/lib/svc/method/smtp-sendmail start"). ]
[ Jan 14 22:15:40 Method or service exit timed out.  Killing contract 3322. ]
[ Jan 14 22:15:40 Method "start" failed due to signal KILL. ]

root@servertt1:# cat /var/yp/binding/
root@servertt1:# ypwhich
Domain not bound on servertt1.
root@servertt1:# svcs -a| grep -i nis
online         13:02:27 svc:/network/nis/domain:default
online         13:02:33 svc:/network/nis/client:default
root@servertt1:# rpcinfo -p nis1-dir1-prod
   program vers proto   port  service
    100000    4   tcp    111  rpcbind
    100000    3   tcp    111  rpcbind
    100000    2   tcp    111  rpcbind
    100000    4   udp    111  rpcbind
    100000    3   udp    111  rpcbind
    100000    2   udp    111  rpcbind
    100028    1   tcp  41487  ypupdated
    100028    1   udp  43565  ypupdated

In above output, it doesn't go further than this. In good configuration, it is supposed to show yppasswdd, ypbind and ypserv.

I am not bothered about smtp, but something is strange on this server, which is not allowing NIS services to work as expected and I am not able to figure out.

Can somebody help me to fix this ?
