Weird behavior on a Sun Fire V120 running solaris 10.

After a power loss I went to power on our sun fire v120 that is running solaris 10 and now it will not boot. I tried power cycling it from the lom and pulling the cord but nothing works. All it does is after a power cycle it will start to boot and then start to spit out a bunch of hex characters spewing in a single line, like this non stop:


Has anyone seen this before?

Sounds like the usual output from a crash dump. Try booting from cd or network and running an fsck on the root disk.

Thanks for the info. That won't work either cause I can't get to the ok prompt to do a boot net -s to fsck it. So I ended up swapping out the hard drive and putting it into a spare chassis and it worked. So looks like I have bad v120 chassis.
