Unable to ping or telnet to system, its just boots up to "ok" prompt

Experts,

  I have a SUN Ultra 5/10 system that i'm unable to ping or telnet to. I do a reset-all on the system and it just comes backup at the OK prompt. I don't have experience with SUN and i'm just trying to get it back up online. Any helps to get this system backup will be great.

thanks.

It is not reading any ide disks; did this box ever boot? If your not sure, Can you open up the box? If it has your disk might have died. If it is an original ultra 5/10. It is pretty old.

Do you have a solaris cd?

you could do a ok> boot cdrom

it will boot into a mini solaris and you can run some diagnostics on the disk.

It seams that the power interruption caused some problem. You may need to do physical inspection oof the system by a qualified person.

I had the system inspected by a SUN Admin and found bad HDD, it was replaced and new OS installed and data restored from backups.
