System “do not boot after” Installing Solaris 10 Kernel Patch

Solaris 10 Kernel Patches are primarily installed to remove all the firmware problems and software

bugs. In most cases, you are benefited with installation of Solaris Kernel Patches. However, there can

be instances where your system becomes unbootable after installing these patches. Furthermore, your

hard drive data becomes inaccessible once your system becomes unbootable. For complete recovery of

inaccessible data after such instances, you will need to restore the data from an updated backup.

However, if no backup is available or backup falls short to restore the desired information, then you

will need to opt for advanced Sun Solaris Intel Data Recovery Software that can systematically recover your data.

Consider a practical scenario, where you install a patch 120586-04 (MP1) on Solaris 10 systems

running VXVM 4.1 patch. However, after you install the new patch and restart your system, you view

that your system hangs every time during a boot up. In addition, you encounter the below error


Boot device: disk File and args:

The above error message primarily occurs when svccfg(1M) removes the External Dependencies.


To resolve the above error message and access the hard drive data, you will need to manually re-import

the “/var/svc/manifest/system/emcpower/powerpath_services.xml” manifest. You will also need to

complete the below steps:

svcadm disable -s powerconfigcgssvcadm disable -s powershiftvcadm disable -s powerstartupsvccfg delete powerconfigcgssvccfg delete powershiftsvccfg delete powerstartupsvccfg import /var/svc/manifest/system/emcpower/powerpath_services.xmlsvcadm enable powerstartupsvcadm enable powershiftsvcadm enable powerconfigcgs

But, if the above resolution fails to remove the issue and your system still remains unbootable, then you

will need to use advanced Solaris Intel Recovery Software. These Sun Solaris Data Recovery tools

use effective scanning methods to recover your lost data after serious corruption scenarios like

superblock corruption, inode structure damage, etc. With highly graphical user-interface, to the point

documentation, these tools are easily understandable without former data recovery experience.

Stellar Phoenix (Solaris – Intel) Data Recovery is an efficient Sun Solaris Data Recovery software.

This non destructive recovery application is compatible with UFS file systems. It gets installed on

Windows (XP, 2003, 2000, NT, ME, 98 and 95) and the affected Sun Solaris hard drive is connected as slave.
