SUMMARY: inetd -t does not work

My initial question: The Solaris 2.6 system gave me the following error 
message: "inetd: couldn't find ISTATE environment variable. Try -s flag." 
during reboot. After reboot, inetd did not start. This error should come 
from the last line of /etc/init.d/inetsvc - '/usr/sbin/inetd -t'. When I do 
'inetd -t' manually, I got this error message again, and inetd couldn't be 
started. When I do 'inetd -s' manually, inetd is started.

In /etc/init.d/inetsvc, the last line should be '/usr/sbin/inetd -s'. I have 
no idea when and HOW it became '/usr/sbin/inetd -t' in my system. Changing 
'-t' back to '-s' solved the boot problem.

Some people indicated that the problem is probably because 'sac' is not 
running according to the manpage. Actually sac is running well after reboot 
(Is it possible that sac is not running and you can still use the system? 
Try to kill 'sac' to see what interesting thing will occur, if you have a 
test system as well as the interest.)

The basic question remains:
Why 'inetd -t' does not work when sac is running?
Can anyone answer it?
