By default, kadb(1M) boots (and debugs) kernel/unix. It can be passed a file name as an argument to boot a different kernel, or -d can be passed to have kadb(1M) prompt for the kernel name. The -d flag also causes kadb(1M) to provide a prompt after it has loaded the kernel, so breakpoints can be set.

Modules are dynamically loaded. Consequently, driver symbols are not generally available until the driver is loaded. To set breakpoints in modules that have not been loaded, use deferred breakpoints. For information on deferred breakpoints, see "Breakpoints".
At this point you can set breakpoints or continue with the :c command.
kadb(1M) passes any kernel flags to the booted kernel. For example, the flags -r, -s, and -a can be passed to kernel/unix with the command:
boot kadb -ras
Once the system is booted, sending a break passes control to kadb(1M). A break is generated with L1+A (on the console of SPARC machines) , or by Crtl+Alt+D (on the console of x86 machines) or ~# (if the console is connected through a tip window).

The number in brackets is the CPU that kadb(1M) is currently executing on; the remaining CPUs are halted. The CPU number is zero on a uniprocessor.
Before rebooting or turning off the power, always halt the system cleanly (with init 0 or shutdown). Buffers may not be flushed otherwise. If the shutdown must occur from the boot PROM prompt, make sure to flush buffers with sync.
To return control to the operating system, use :c.
