Off the top of my head, no. We can try to figure it out. Do you have any cron jobs that anacron is trying to run that aren't the default?

just an fyi -

all init 2 does is drop it down from run level 3 to run level 2

this stops certain processes that only run in rl 3.


Why are you changing to run level 2?

I am practicing Solaris from scratch and getting that error. What do you mean by output of dmesg. Is dmesg any file, how can I find it what is the location of it.
