When i start the machine it first goes to grub then loads solaris 10, on reboot it comes to command prompt

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

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
http://sunsolve.sun.com/show.do?target=patches/patch-access
to see if it can fix the problem.
