How the system was restarted? did you encountered any power failure?

What type of disk partitions are you using? are using volume manager ?

when you enter single user mode, can you run the following command

fsck -y

There was a scheduled power shutdown last weekend for a maintenance activity, hence I have shutdown the server on friday and again started it this morning.

We are using "UFS" filesystem....no volume manager.

Yes, I am able to run fsck -y, it has done changes to the filesystem...but even after that getting "Bad System Call" error when tr to mount FS.

did you install any patches before that? do you have a valid / recent full backup of your system?
