Hi, everyone. I have a little problem. Our primary server hung on something last night, and I don’t know
what. I could not get into it, even with ssh. So, maybe I did something stupid, but I powered the machine off.
Now it will not boot.
Editing the GRUB menu options, removing the console line and adding “-v -m verbose” to the kernel line
gave me the following output, after a very long time. (Several minutes, which is long for this machine.)
Jul 4 11:51:59 svc.startd: svc:/system/boot-archive:default: Method or service exit timed out.
Killing contract 27.
Jul 4 11:51:59 svc.startd: svc:/system/boot-archive:default: Method
"/lib/svc/method/boot-archive" failed due to signal KILL.
timed out. Killing contract 27.
It kicked me into a maintenance boot prompt.
svc:/network/rpc/smserver:default (removable media management)
State: unitialized since July 4, 2014 11:48:58 AM MDT
Reason: Restarter svc:/network/inetd:default is not running.
See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M rpc.smserverd
Impact: 2 dependent services are not running:
Since it referred to the removable media management, I unplugged the IDE cables from the CD Rom and the
Floppy drive, disabled the IDE controller in the BIOS, and tried booting again. Same thing.
I tried booting into a previous boot environment. Same thing.
Could anyone please tell me what I should do next? If so, I would GREATLY appreciate it.
