Hi,

When i start the machine it first goes to grub and then loads solaris 10 06/06

Once this is done

This is the information i see on the screen


Warning elx10: link failure

Warning - The following files in / differ form the boot archive: /etc/path_to_inst
cannot find: /etc/device/mid_ib_cache: no file or directory

To continue booting at your own risk clear the service

#svcadm clear system/boot-archive

Mar 29 svc.startd[7]: svc:/system/boot-archive:default: Method "/lib/svc/method/boot-archive" failed with exit status 95

svc.startd[7]: system/boot-archive:default failed fatally: transitioned to maintenance (see 'svcs -xv' for details)

So I really have no idea where to go about, reinstalling OS is a very easy solution but i think i don't learn anything out of it so i want to learn the hard way, also i have run this command

$svcadm clear system/boot-archive

after which system gets reboot and then appears the graphical mode but unfortunately the system comes back to the same command prompt once it reboot.

I will be very obliged with your help

Do you have a power outrage?
It looks like your system is boot into single user mode, try to type in "Ctrl d" to see if it can go to multiuser mode.
please have a look at the following docs:
http://bugs.opensolaris.org/view_bug.do?bug_id=6415092
http://bugs.opensolaris.org/view_bug.do?bug_id=6415092
also try to apply  the latest Recommended Patch Clusters for your version of Solaris

to see if it can fix the problem.
