Question Cisco ASAv keeps rebooting

Hello all,

Installed Cisco ASAv (971) virtual appliance on ESXi 5.1 using VMware vSphere
Standalone Client and it keeps rebooting with the below error.

INIT: Id "adi" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: cannot execute "/tmp/run_cmd"

What could be the problem?

In the mean time, I checked online resources and as per the suggestions,
the default run level 5 of the host must be changed to 3.

Other issue I faced isÖ

I run SSH session to VMware ESXI 5.1 host using putty as the user root.

Iím not able to edit the /etc/inittab file on the host that Iím connected.

Accessed the ESXi host console directly also pressing ALT+F1 and logged in as root,
the same issue below is there.

Followed the VMWARE Knowledge base article but
nowhere close to see and edit the file. Iím stuck and need your input.

---below is the output ---

> /etc #
> vi /etc/inittab

::sysinit:/usr/lib/vmware/rp/bin/configRP init
::wait:/sbin/ start
::wait:/usr/lib/vmware/vmksummary/ boot
::wait:/sbin/vmdumper -g 'Boot Successful'
::wait:/bin/sh ++min=0,group=host/vim/vimuser/terminal/shell /etc/rc.loc
::wait:/sbin/esxcfg-init --set-boot-progress done
::wait:/sbin/ start
tty1::respawn:/sbin/ tty1 /sbin/
tty2::respawn:-/sbin/ tty2 /sbin/dcuiweasel
::shutdown:/usr/lib/vmware/vmksummary/ stop

Access to the directory is denied is the other issue

~ # /etc/inittab
-sh: /etc/inittab: Permission denied

Your help is highly appreciated.
