Error Boot problem with SMF svcs-Solaris 10 for x86

Hi All,

I am newbie in solaris, please guide me.
A week before i installed solaris10 on my x86 system, it was working fine i always used "init 5" to shutdown my system as per my collegue advice.
But yesterday when i started my system it gave me following message

svc:/network/rpc/keyserv:default:method "/usr/sbin/keyserv" failed with exit status 1
svc:/system/filesystem/local:default:WARNING:/sbin/mountall -l failed: exit status 1
svc.startd[7]:svc:/system/filesystem/local:default:method "/lib/svc/method/fs-local" failed with exit status 96
[system/filesystem/local:default misconfigured(see 'svcs -x' for details)]

requesting system maintanence mode
console login service(s) cannot run
Root password for system maintanence (control-d to bypass):-

i gave the password and executed the command svcs -x

# svcs -x
svc:/system/filesystem/local:default (Local file system mounts)
state:maintanence since Sat Mar 29 12:06:32 2008
Reason:start method exited with $SMF_EXIT_ERR_CONFIG
see:Sun Microsystems Message Lookup
impact:13 services are not running


So this is my problem, please your prompt response is required.
Thanks In advance

can you get svc:/system/filesystem/local:default out of maintenance mode?

From the output you have posted it is failing to mount one or more of the filesystems described in /etc/vfstab.

Either look at the log to see which filesystems are the problem, or alternatively run
Code:
mount -a

or
Code:
/sbin/mountall

which should also give you this information.

Pupp: As you've mentioned, it is no coming out/clearing from maintanence mode, i tried many options but no luck !!!

Reborg: i invoked the commands you said it gave me below result

#mount -a
mount:No such file or directory
mount:/tmp is already mounted or SWAP is busy
mount:/devdsk/c1d0s7 is already mounted or /export/home is busy

#/sbin/mountall
mount:No such file or directory
mount:/tmp is already mounted or SWAP is busy
mount:/devdsk/c1d0s7 is already mounted or /export/home is busy


Still no luck !!! Please help Smilie

Hurray Smilie !!!

Thanks guys for your support... issue is finally resolved.

well i have added new mount last week in /etc/vfstab file as i am using two harddisk in my system. i forgot to mentioned above.

first i removed the newline which i added in /etc/vfstab then disabled the service by command
#svcadm -v disable svc:/system/filesystem/local:default
service came from maintenance mode to disable mode

#svcadm -v clear svc:/system/filesystem/local:default
#svcadm -v enable svc:/system/filesystem/local:default

And it worked fine. Again i repeated the same steps to ensure the problem was with mounting.

Thanks again to all of you!

!!!You help someone and god helps you!!!
