I am new to solaris and am setting up a sunfire  280r server. Upon booting from the console, I recieve the following error:

panic[cpu0]/thread=10408000: mod_hold_stub: Couldn't load module misc/strplumb

I have no idea how to recover from this error and can't reinstall the OS as I don't have the media kit available.

You really need to get a media kit.  Assuming you have a CD burner, you can download Solaris 9 or even Solaris 10.  Then you can boot off the CD and look around the system for issues.

Anyway you can copy/paste the boot messages you see just prior to this panic ?

Are the system drives mirrored ?  This may have something to do with disk corruption.

Did you make any change (hareware or software) to the system before the system panic?

Please go to the following site down load the Solaris 9 Software CD (Free):

You need at least Sotware CD 1 of 2 and 2 of 2.

Then use the 1st CD to boot up the system in to single user mode, at ok prompt, type
boot cdrom -s
the run fsck to raw devices (to all file systems), eg:
fsck -y /dev/c0t0d0s0

then mount the /var file system (it could be in the same partition as /)
then have a look at /var/adm/messages file.

If /var stiing in / and mount points is /mnt, then look at:

If /var is a stand alone file system, and mount on /mnt:

Try to post as much error messages from the last boot as you can.
