[erlang-questions] Installing 17.1 on a T2 kills it

This sounds like it could be a number of possible issues, not exactly 
related to Erlang.  I would start by checking the file system and 
partitions.  Have you checked to see if there's any partition that's out 
of space?   That could definitely bring your system down and keep you 
from booting correctly.  There might be physical problem with the 
disk(s) or something messed up with /etc/fstab.  And there certainly 
might be other possible issues.  My overall recommendation with such a 
system is to try to get the latest  Solaris (v11.2) DVD, and do a 
completely new install, while checking the state of the disk(s) in the 
process.  OpenIndiana might work well also.  In the new install, try to 
minimize the number of partitions as possible, while maximizing their sizes.
