Thanks to Darren Dunham, Mehran Salehi, and Tom Zurita for helping get
to the bottom of this.

Ideas were to:

1)       boot from cdrom and fsck / partition

2)       verify that vxvm rootvol was enabled

3)       to un-encapsulate root (by commenting out
vxio:vol_rootdev_is_volume=1 and rootdev:/pseudo/vxio@0:0 from
/etc/system; then remove references to vx in /etc/vfstab) and reboot

What I did:

1)       Un-encapsulated root (steps in #3 are only part of the process
- email me if you want the whole process)

2)       Reboot

3)       System came up fine

4)       Ran vxdiskadm to encapsulate root

5)       Reboot

6)       Problem re-occurred

7)       Noticed that entries for rootdev were not in /etc/system (Added
vxio:vol_rootdev_is_volume=1 and rootdev:pseudo/vxio@0:0).

8)       Reboot to single user mode

9)       System came up fine

10)   Brought up system into multi-user mode (system came up fine)
