Solaris 7 (Intel Platform Edition) 8/99 Release Notes

Some Console Messages Cannot Be Redirected to Auxiliary Consoles (4197589)

Daemons or commands may use /dev/console explicitly to display messages. The frequency of such messages is low among the set of messages that the console may display.

Workaround: All messages are still printed to /dev/console and can therefore be monitored. You can also monitor syslog log files.
