Become superuser by one of the following methods. Both methods require that you know the root password.
Change to the superuser account by using the su command.
% su Password: root_password #
The pound sign (#) is the Bourne shell prompt for the superuser account.
Log in as superuser on the system console.
hostname console: root Password: root_password #
This method is not enabled by default. You must modify the /etc/default/login file to log in as superuser on the system console. See "Securing Systems (Tasks)" in System Administration Guide, Volume 2 for information on modifying this file.
