Solaris 7 5/99 Release Notes (SPARC Platform Edition)

The init Command Does Not Display Its Run Level Prompt When Reconnecting to the Port of an Auxiliary Console (4196993)

If a configuration includes one or more auxiliary consoles and the carrier drops the connection for the auxiliary console on which the init command was run, and the sulogin shell has exited from another auxiliary or default console, then the following prompt will not be displayed after reestablishing the connection on the port from which the carrier dropped the connection:


Although you are never prompted for the run level, the system is still waiting for the run level to be entered.

Workaround: Reestablish the connection on the port from the carrier has dropped the connection and enter the desired run level even though you are not prompted for the run level.
