    Solaris 10 server stuck in single user mode?

      Hi all,


      Tried patching a Solaris 10 server in single user mode, but we had changed the staging dir to /opt/patches (the only dir where there is space on most of the servers).


      This caused the job to hang, presumably (as a solaris admin later told me) becuase /opt is not mounted in single user mode so the job could not proceed. We can also not contact the server via Blade as the network is down because it is in single user mode.


      Anyone got any ideas how to get the server out of single user mode? Solaris guy has tried everything but says Blade seems to have ticked a flag somewhere making it always boot into single user?


      Also, any ideas how to avoid this in the future?
