Maybe. It is just an hipothesis as there have been some issues with
NIS/DNS reported in the past even if none of this gravity as far as I can

nslookup? this is the "internet" domain.

When the machine is booting try try Stop-A.
This shoud give you a text prompt on the OBP.
type boot and you should see the messages from the booting process still
in text mode.
before any graphics there should be a login prompt, type something to stop
the graphical login and see in you can logon from there.
Alternatively you can always disconnect keyboard and video, attach a
serial cable to port A and get a login over the serial line from another
machine. (tip -9600 /dev/XXX) where XXX is the name of the serial port
from another sun machine.
Hope it helps.
