Depending on how long the command rm -r * pool/fs1 had run, before you interrupted it (if you interrrupted it), you may have lost alot of system files, that are necessary for solaris, to boot up.

The only solution I see in this case is, to restore the last backup. I hope, you have some !!!

Maybe the boot folder was the first, that was deleted. Therefore, no kernel files are there, to boot your system.

Simply use a Linux Live CD to restore your backup to your solaris box.

I think you would be better off using a Solaris CD rather than a Linux one. Linux doesn't support ZFS.

It may be easier to just reinstall Solaris.

ijack is right about using Solaris Live CD and ZFS filesystem.

About the command to restore files from backup.
This depends on the command you used, to create the backup. You should be aware of how you've made the backup.
