After massive updates new BE is unbootable
Went ahead and did a "pkg image-update" for the first time in OS200805. It indicated 3 driver related failures as the only errors of vnic, aggr, & dld. I looked it up to find that it is a known bug, but I'm not sure of the status. The process had created the new BE of OpenSolaris-1 and indicated that it would be the active BE on reboot. I closed everything up and shutdown. Now when I boot to the new BE it just keeps on rapidly rebooting over and over. I notice that each time more text shows up on the boot console although it goes by too fast to see what it says. Anyone know what is going on? Can I fix this? Do I need to roll back? To roll back, do I just destroy the new BE? And if I do roll back, what should I do differently to avoid this?
