Booting problem in solaris - Part 1

1. Booting in single user mode and mounting root hard disk

Most important step in diagnosing the booting problems is booting the system in single user mode and examining the hard disk for possible errors & work out the corrective measure.

Single user mode can be achieved by any of the following methods :-

ok> boot -s (from root disk)
ok> boot net -s (from network)
ok>boot cdrom -s (from cdrom)
Rebooting with command: cdrom -s
Configuring the /devices directory
Configuring the /dev directory |
# fsck /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s0
# mount /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s0 /mnt
Perform the required operation on mounted disk , now accessible through /mnt ,& unmount the hard disk after you are done ;

# umount /mnt
# reboot
