    help with reboot error for solaris 10

    927019
      Hi,

      we have a sun sparc solaris 10 machine and recently there was a power failure and one of the server domain was down. So today morning i have powered up the domain and it returned me to ok prompt then i have booted the machine with disk from devalias, the system was up as normal and no error messages in message file. All the mount points we available as it was in vfstab. To be on safer side i have rebooted the machine and it never came back up and from xscf console i had a look and the system got repeating these messages as below
      Feb  7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/sysevent:default: Method or service exit timed out.  Killing contract 19.
      Feb  7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/cryptosvc:default: Method or service exit timed out.  Killing contract 22.
      Feb  7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/coreadm:default: Method or service exit timed out.  Killing contract 23.
      Feb  7 12:58:08 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/power:default: Method or service exit timed out.  Killing contract 24.
      .
      .
      .
      .
      Then i have powered the whole domain down. Not able to understand what the issue was and any help will be great.


      Thanks,

          did you do svcs -xv to see what services have not started. Also you can take a look the log file for each one of these services and, find out why they did not start

            Hi,

            The system doesnt load up to check the svcs -vx command when rebooted. I am able to bring server up when only i did a shutdown instead of reboot. when the system was up i had a look at the services which are timed out when rebooted and all the services were fine and in online state and no error in svcs -vx.

            I believe it could be something of getting time out and thought of increasing the timeout for start and stop but any ways got my issue sorted by solaris itself.

            seen similar cases in google so below link could be helpful
