System Administration Guide: Basic Administration

ProcedureHow to Start the Console Service

This procedure starts the server temporarily. If the server was disabled from starting when the system boots, it will continue to be disabled. If the server was enabled, it will continue to be enabled.

Starting with the Solaris 10 11/06 release, the running enabled state displays as true (temporary), if the server is running while disabled.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Start the server now, without changing the enabled state.
