root partition full and problem start

We have SunOS 5.7 m/c. Following is the situation and problem what we are facing -

- The root partition was full.
- No login was possible on server (not from console also)
- M/c was power swithced off
- After this only console login is possible. FTP is possible. No telnet is possible.

I want to know what could be the probable reasons. Also what files I have to check on the server to see that they are in normal state.

Regards,
Rahul

Hello friends,

Thank you very much to all who replied to my question. We could able to solve the problem. It was /bin/login problem. We copied the /bin/login file from similar type of other server to the problematic server and telnet start working. The truss command really helped us in diagnosis.

Regards,
Rahul
