DU4.0e won't boot to multiuser mode

HI All:

My Alphastation running DUV4.0e can't seem to get past single-user mode. Very little info - simply says, Unknown error during boot, then it sits at single-user. An init 3 to try to get it beyond, results in same single-user status.

Any hints to break this log-jam?

Thanks,

Re: DU4.0e won't boot to multiuser mode

I first would try to mount all file sytems:

bcheckrc

Ensure that all file systems are mounted, specially /usr and /var. If a filesystem is not mounted, run the /sbin/advfs/verify command to check the integrity.

Then, I would go and start the service one by one, from the /sbin/rc3.d directory.

Hi,

along with above solution you can
Check if disklabel is reabable for your boot disk.

link for usr is there in /etc/fdmns.

Check if swap is available otherwise add swap with swapon /dev/rzxb

hope this will help.

thanks

Hi,

You can try to boot the generic kernel.

boot -fi genvmunix
