Well you've already successfully booted into single user from this hard disk so you might as well try going multi-user with CTRL-D

Is /var a separate filesystem? Have you allocated the slice, newfs'd and restored it? Have you modified /etc/vfstab with the right device node to point to it?

If you boot into single user:



Code:
ok> boot -sw

and give the root password to get to a # prompt, can you then manually mount /dev/dsk/c?t?d?s? on /var? Does it work or does it complain?

If it works, take a look in /var/adm to see if the file is there.

Or have you restored the /var contents into /var on the root filesystem with the vfstab mounting over the top and hiding the files????

Repeat, is /var a separate filesystem or not?

Double check your entries in /etc/vfstab (/a/etc/vfstab when mounted on the DVD) to ensure that the devices you have set for root (/), /usr, and /var (if separate) point to the slices that you restored them to.

An incorrect setting for root (/) could be causing this.
