Not able to start cron service in Solaris 10

Hi,

This is Solaris-10 x86. I am not able to start cron service, configured in FMRI. It is in maintenance and when I clear it, it seems like calling and failing on /etc/init.d/tcs-rtm script. I am not able to figure out, why cron is calling that script, if this failure is because of that. Cron should be independent of any custom script. And from where, I can get rid of this dependency ?

Code:
# svcs -p cron
STATE          STIME    FMRI
maintenance    16:08:03 svc:/system/cron:default
# svcadm clear svc:/system/cron:default
# cd /var/svc/log
# tail -f system-cron:default.log

What happens when you attempt to execute the script from the command line, without cron?
# 3  
The cron service itself is corrupted. It should not run that script.

For further diagnosis please give output from
Code:
svcs -l cron

Are the other services okay?

Here is output :
Code:
# svcs -l cron
