Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


During the installation process, there is an option to save the configuration assistant choices to a file. The error is pointing to the saved configuration file. The user was never supposed to have the option to save these choices to a file. Users should exit the setup after making their choices. If the users do save these choices to a file and if this file gets deleted or moved, the system hangs during the boot process. To solve this problem, the user boots in single user mode. From the # prompt, the user should do the following:

  1. cd /platform/i86pc/boot/solaris/machines

  2. Delete all files in this directory.

  3. Reboot the system.

This corrects the problem and allows the Solaris software to complete loading.
