Have you tried rebooting?

If so, and the above state happens each time, try this:

svcadm disable svc:/network/rpc/gss:default
svcadm disable svc:/network/inetd:default
svcadm enable svc:/network/inetd:default
svcadm enable svc:/network/rpc/gss:default

If it still hangs up, post the output of this command

svcs -l svc:/network/inetd:default

I suspect that the root of the problem is that the loopback interface isn't coming up. I've never seen that happen before, but if the config of the loopback got messed with anything is possible. Does /etc/hosts have the localhost definition?
