Solaris Operating System: Local Filesystem Issue May Cause No Network Services on Reboot
Last updated on JULY 29, 2016
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Systems running Solaris 10 Operating System (S10) with local filesystem issues will find that network services such as inetd or sshd fail start.
A bootup/reboot, will commonly see this type of message:
SunOS Release 5.10 Version Generic_118822-25 64-bit Copyright 1983-2005 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights reserved. Use is subject to license terms. Hostname: netlab36 SUNW,eri0 : 100 Mbps full duplex link up checking ufs filesystems /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s0: is logging. svc:/system/filesystem/local:default: WARNING: /sbin/mountall -l failed: exit status 1 May 26 21:02:42 svc.startd: svc:/system/filesystem/local:default: Method "/lib/svc/method/fs-local" failed with exit status 95. [ system/filesystem/local:default failed fatally (see 'svcs -x' for details) ]
At least four items may be observed during this issue:
- 'svcs -x' sees issue with: svc:/system/filesystem/local:default (local file system mounts)
- 'inetd' not running
- 'sshd' not running
- multiuser milestone is not completed
Since network services are not available in this situation, administrators will need to be connected to the system via console or serial port to see these boot errors.
