Rebuilding solaris corrupted boot archive

The problem was due to the corrupted boot-archive as a result of hard reboot or power failure. which I rebuilt through failsafe mode. Here is what I did

1. Boot into failsafe through console.
2. Let system to probe / and mount it to /a
3. cd  /a/platform/i86pc
4. mv  boot_archive boot_archive.crash
5. cd
6. bootadm update-archive -f -R  /a               ; this takes few minutes and recreates the boot_archive

7. reboot

These are the actual steps that helped to bring back the box.
