comment Solaris 11 nsswitch.conf messed up, need to edit it from an alternate kernel
That would've been exactly what I was looking for, shame I didn't see it before I nuked the entire thing.

I will have another look. I did attempt to use svccfg to fix the problem but it threw a pretty hard error, something like "error on line 28432 in asdf.c" (wish I hadn't closed that ssh window like an idiot). I would guess that error is happening because authentication is all kinds of screwed now, if single user mode stops that error I will be in business.

Solaris 11 no longer uses the nsswitch.conf to manage these things, it's managed via the service. The service, as far as I know, ignores the .conf file now (per the verbiage in the conf file itself). Secondly, if it was even the same conf file I wouldn't be able to authenticate in the first place to log back in.
