Boot archive error or corrupt

A few weeks ago, I got a little problem with my solaris box, namely solaris won’t boot because the boot archive was corrupt, *sigh*. Anyway the boot archive in solaris 10 was contain kernel module and configuration file was needed for solaris to startup the system.


module /platform/i86pc/boot_archive error 3 bad or corrupt data while decompressing file


Boot up your solaris in “solaris failsafe mode”, next solaris image will mount with writeable mode on “/a” mount point

rm -f /a/platform/i86pc/boot_archive

bootadm update-archive -R /a
