Ksyms missing in Solaris


Hi,
On solaris-10 server, this file is missing, which is causing another issue. Can somebody guide, how to fix this ? This is tough server to take downtime, uptime of 3 years. I am thinking, is there anything, which I can do without reconfiguration reboot.
devfsadm didn't helped
Code:
bash-3.2# ls -l /dev/kmem /dev/ksyms
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     other         27 Jan 28  2011 /dev/kmem -> ../devices/pseudo/mm@0:kmem
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     other         31 Jan 28  2011 /dev/ksyms -> ../devices/pseudo/ksyms@0:ksyms
bash-3.2# ls -l /devices/pseudo/mm@0:kmem /devices/pseudo/ksyms@0:ksyms
/devices/pseudo/ksyms@0:ksyms: No such file or directory
crw-r-----   1 root     sys       13,  1 Jan 28  2011 /devices/pseudo/mm@0:kmem
bash-3.2#
bash-3.2# pkgchk -n SUNWcakr
ERROR: /boot/solaris/bin/create_ramdisk
    file size <12296> expected <12328> actual
    file cksum <45255> expected <48263> actual
bash-3.2#
Thanks

As with many of your threads, unsure of why you don't want to reboot. We realize that it isn't an easy thing to do, but being the administrator you have to accept that as part of the job. Did you run cfgadm with the proper switches?? What, if anything is the actual *PROBLEM* with the server? Why is this an issue?? What has changed recently to make this come up?

And as you've been asked many times in the past, have you contacted the support you're paying for?? There is a known, reported issue with Solaris regarding this...if your system is patched and up to date, the cfgadm should get it going. See the Solaris knowledgebase for details.
