    I cant boot my sunfire v120

    807557
      Please, I have a SunFire v120 and I don't know what happens...
      When I try poweron and use a notebook to conect to my system I got this message:

      Type control-d to proceed with normal starup (or give root password for system maintenance)

      If i click control+d some errors appear (cant mount /var....)

      And I don't know the password (was not me that used this system... and nobody knows the password)

      What can i do ???
      I am a newbie in the Solaris OS.

      I already downloded the Solaris 10 to install, but i dont know how... because i dont know how to boot from a cd if i dont have the password


      Please, i really need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          The system apparently has some file systems which need to be checked for errors.
          By installing a new OS you should be able to ignore these.

          Have you tried booting up the system with the Solaris 10 CD in the drive already?

              "ok" you see is not the os. you are in the openboot environment, not solaris. after you get the run fsck manually, it should ask you for the root password to get into the console. you should be in single user mode then the fsck should work.

                do you know if this version : SunOS Release 5.8 Version Generic_108528-18 64-bit and with sunfire v120 i can upgrade to Solaris 10 ??
                Because i did the download from sun website but i cant...

                and the command boot cdrom -sw dont work for me...

                  if you need to, backup your data on the machine. the boot cdrom command should be run from the "ok" prompt.

                        807557
                        The most common reason you will get this message is if you have a "simple" hostname for your system, and not a fully-qualified domain name.

                        For example, if in the hosts table you have the system listed as "myhost" and not "myhost.example.com".

                        Be careful of this when you give the configuration information when installing.

                          ok... when in the installation was asked to a hostame i just put sunfire...
                          what can i do now? i cant enter in the system to change this!!!

                          i am connecting to a notebook...i press many keys and nothing works... (esc, ctrl pause-break, etc)...

                            i search google how to stop that error...

                            but now i have another question...

                            i need to configure a interface to use telnet!!!

                            but i have just one:
                            # ifconfig -a

                            #


                            and before the installation i had:

                              If you configured your system as non-networked, it won't configure any network ports. :)

                              The 'lo0' interface is the "loopback" interface and only allows the system to connect to itself.

                              If you want to be able to telnet into your system, you should install it as networked.
                              I also noticed that you seem to have IPv6 support installed. You probably should not unless you know you need IPv6.

                              Setting up networking involves dealing with multiple configuration files.

                              The easiest way to do it is to run sys-unconfig and do a complete reconfigure of your system.

                                The interfaces are not listed using "ifconfig -a" if they are not configured.
                                The easiest way to assign an ip-address to interface eri0 is to enter the following commands when logged in as root:

                                ifconfig eri0 plumb
                                ifconfig eri0 <ip-address> netmask <netmask> up

                                example:
                                # ifconfig eri0 plumb
                                # ifconfig eri0 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

                                Now you should see interface eri0 listed with the corresponding ip-address when you enter the "ifconfig -a" command.

                                This method is not resident across reboots.
                                If you want this to be permanent then create the following file /etc/hostname.eri0 and enter the ip-address/interface-name in the hosts file:

                                # echo "test-interface" > /etc/hostname.eri0
                                # echo "192.168.1.1 test-interface" >> /etc/hosts

                                Cheers,
                                Solstice
