Well thanks to all that replied there were many!!

A lot of replies going down the line of booting into single user mode
and editing /etc/system & /etc/vfstab to remove the "md" parts and get
it to boot from the underlying physical disks. This also failed with a
different error:

Copyright 1983-2003 Sun Microsystems, Inc.  All rights reserved.
Cannot assemble drivers for root
Cannot mount root on
/pci@8,600000/SUNW,qlc@2/fp@0,0/disk@w21000004cf8fc8ac,0:a fstype ufs

As apposed to the original error of:

Cannot mount root on /pseudo/md@0:0,0,blk fstype ufs

After much head scratching and time spent it was decided to re-install
the O/S, this being on a single disk and still leaving us with the other
half of the original root disk mirror with all data.

This has been done & the server is now being patched.

As to what the error was, what caused it and how it could have been
fixed I'm still not sure.

But thanks for your help - Julian.
