Solaris Server is not booting correctly

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
I've had a client call me out to check their server. I have a little bit of experience with Linux but none with Solaris. Here's the message from the server. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. If you do the control-d it lets you log in to a bash prompt, from there I'm lost on what to do next.

Hostname: anibus
/dev/dsk/c1t0d0s1: I/O error

/sbin/rcs: /etc/dfs/sharetab: cannot create

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