Lightbulb Serious problem to fail boot up

My current OS using the solaris 9 and find the reboot , it returns the message even i restore , and boot -s

The fundamental issue here is:

Quote:
mount: mount-point /usr does not exist.
This may be the only problem or there might be more extensive filesystem damage.

Do you have the Solaris 9 install media? If so,



Code:
ok> book cdrom -s

to boot into single user from DVD.

At the # prompt, you can then mount your hard disk root filesystem under /a to inspect it. Something like:



Code:
# mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s0 /a

(assuming your root filesystem is c0t0d0s0)

Hi

Here is my server vfstab



Code:
/proc   -       /proc   proc    -       no      - 
 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s1       -       -       swap    -       no      - 
 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0       /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0      /       ufs     1       no      - 
 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s6       /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s6      /usr    ufs     1       no      - 
 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s5       /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s5      /var    ufs     1       no      - 
 swap    -       /tmp    tmpfs   -       yes     - 
 #

I mount to / /var /usr , and view all the content , but try to reboot again and again . It still come out this issue.



Code:

 /sbin/swapadd: expr: not found

I boot from solaris 9 or 10 to copy those missing file but still not to work to boot up successfully.

Does the mountpoint /usr exist on your hard disk root filesystem?????

If not, then the booting system will not be able to mount the /usr filesystem and that will cause a big problem.

Boot from DVD:


Code:
ok> boot cdrom -s

When at # prompt:


Code:
# mount /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s0 /a



Code:
# cd /a
# ls -l

Does the mountpoint directory /usr exist????? Your error message says that it doesn't!! Post the output of ls -l

Copying files from a Solaris 10 media to a failing Solaris 9 installation will make things significantly worse...

I'm not sure what you mean by saying "i boot from Sol 9 CD but the kernel is latest one"???

You cannot run a Solaris 10 or 11 kernel on a system with Solaris 9 libraries, and there is no reason to believe that you'll be successful running a Solaris 9 kernel on a system with Solaris 10 or 11 libraries.

You should run a kernel on a system with libraries that have the same release numbers (major and minor and micro).
